About Chatham Township

New Jersey Monthly magazine named Chatham Township #1 in their 2008 Best Places to Live edition based on its stable population growth, open space, minimal crime and low jobless rate.  This was an incredible achievement considering that 566 New Jersey municipalities were considered.

Chatham has also been noticed by other major publications.  When CNN and Money magazine ranked Chatham ninth on its list of The 100 Best Places to Live in the United States in 2005, they described it as more like a “small New England town than a bustling Big Apple ‘burb.”  Indeed, Chatham real estate offers vintage architecture, a strategic location 25 miles from Manhattan and an abiding sense of community making it a desirable destination in southeastern Morris County.

Chatham Borough and Chatham Township share a common heritage and are sometimes jointly referred to as The Chathams. Although the two are actually separate municipalities, they do share a library, school district, volunteer ambulance corps, zip code and post office.  Residents have been known to say the Township and Borough are really just like one town that happens to have two different governments.

Noteworthy for the fine examples of Colonial and Victorian architecture along its tree-lined streets, the borough’s historic district on the east end of Main Street is filled with charming homes.  Proud of its Early American roots, the borough was a resting spot for George Washington during the Revolutionary War.

Cultural opportunities in Chatham include historical, art, garden and musical groups, as well as the facilities and programs at neighboring Drew and Fairleigh Dickinson universities. Nearby communities include Summit, New Providence, Berkeley Heights, Harding Township, Madison, Florham Park, Morristown, Short Hills, Millburn and Livingston.
