Washington Township Biography

About Washington Township

Washington Township is located in the western-most portion of Morris County, a picturesque part of the state that still maintains a rural feeling with an abundance of farmland and wide open spaces. This is an ideal setting for residents who appreciate a peaceful setting that’s still within commuting distance of Manhattan. 

 

Measuring nearly 45 square miles, Washington Township encompasses the largest area of any municipality in Morris County. The township borders Somerset, Warren and Hunterdon Counties and is about 15 miles from the Delaware River and Pennsylvania border. Routes 46, 24/513 and 517 pass through town, and Interstate Route 80 is minutes away in Mount Olive, a neighboring community.

 

Two notable sections of Washington Township are Long Valley and Schooley’s Mountain.  Long Valley was once known as German Valley since settlers from Saxony, a region of Germany near the border of Poland, relocated there in the 1700s. 

 

Schooley’s Mountain stands as a tall ridge in great contrast to the gently rolling hillsides found in the rest of the region. It became a famous resort in the 19th century due to its natural springs. The region’s iron-infused chalybeate water was said to have health-giving properties and many people promoted the water’s healing qualities.
