Historic Markers

Morris County has had a historic site marker program in place since 1975. Over 140 historic sites now have their significance briefly described on cast aluminum signs painted in burgundy and pale grey with the county seal in gold.

These sites weave together the threads of Morris County’s history from the colonial era through the twentieth century. Locations marked include forges, iron works, taverns, schools, mills, historic districts, churches, homes and mansions.

The Commission, with generous support from the Board of Chosen Freeholders, continues to designate new sites and maintain and repair existing markers each year.  Read the guidelines and download an application for a Historic Site Marker.

Below is a list of markers searchable by municipality or by marker name.  Each marker location provides the name and an option of viewing a map and historic site report. By clicking on the Map icon, you can see the location via a street map or satellite map.  The Report icon will display the name, location, and description of the historic site, along with images of both the marker and site; a street map; and GPS coordinates.

These historic site markers commemorate, educate, and keep the history of Morris County visible. The Heritage Commission invites you to enjoy both virtual and self-guided tours of Morris County’s multifaceted history.
