about this item

The Morris Canal community of Montville covers a nine-mile-long area bounded by the Rockaway River to the west and the Passaic River to the east. Montville Township was formed in 1867 from land set off from Pequannock Township and incorporates sections of Montville, Pine Brook, and Towacco (formerly known as White Hall). Set within the foothills of the Hook Mountains, the area has always been known for its clear springs, deposits of limestone and iron ore, and fertile soil. Long traversed by the Lenni-Lenape people, it drew Dutch patentees to hide-trapping, tanning, and eventually, farming. During the Revolutionary War, General Washington visited the Doremus House in the northwestern part of Montville. Montville Township: Celebrating 150 Years reflects this community’s multifaceted history.
