The History of the Paper Mill Playhouse
The Paper Mill Playhouse in Millburn, New Jersey opened its doors in 1938 at the site of the historic The Thistle Paper Mill. The very first play to be performed was The Kingdom of God, a play by Martinez Sierra.
Throughout the fifties and sixties, the Paper Mill Playhouse incorporated operettas, plays and musicals into its repertoire. Stars like Jane Fonda, Gene Wilder and Carol Channing performed at the Paper Mill Playhouse.
The Paper Mill Playhouse was declared the “State Theatre of New Jersey” by Governor William Cahill during the 1970s. Even more Hollywood and Broadway stars performed at the Paper Mill Playhouse during this decade, including Academy Award and Tony winning actress, Bernadette Peters, who starred in Dames at Sea.
Tragedy struck in 1980–the Paper Mill Playhouse burnt to the ground on January 14,1980. However, in two short years, the Paper Mill Playhouse reopened in a star-studded opening night gala with a brand new modernized theater that featured accessible seating and an infrared listening system.
The National Endowment for the Arts ranked the Paper Mill Playhouse second in the nation for artistic excellence in 1986, with only the famed Metropolitan Opera in New York City coming out on top.
This historic commitment to excellence has propelled the Paper Mill Playhouse into a new century, being noted for its wonderful theater performances and artistic training programs.

Though commonly referred to as The Chathams, Chatham Borough and Chatham Township in Morris County, New Jersey, are two separate municipalities. Chatham Borough first settled in 1710 as a colonial English village in the Province of New Jersey.
In 1806, Chatham Township was formed, taking its name from the pre-revolutionary village, and is a type of municipal government unique to the state of New Jersey. It includes the township boundary and several villages as well as large areas of connected or adjacent, unsettled land. Chatham Township is less densely populated and is considered more southern than the borough of Chatham.
Also Green Village, another town dating back to colonial times, remains partially in Chatham Township but has its own post office and fire department. The Chatham post office provides postal services and rural delivery to portions of Chatham Township not served by Green Village.
In 1974, a measure was passed for the citizens of Chatham Township to share the Chatham library. Then, in 1986, Chatham and Chatham Township held elections to consider joining their separate school systems into a joint district. The measure passed proposal and since then, the two municipalities share a regional school district, known as the School District of the Chathams. In addition, the Chatham post office provides postal services to some areas of Chatham Township.
- Milton Avenue School, Southern Boulevard School and Washington Avenue School: Kindergarten through third grade
- Lafayette School: Grades fourth and fifth
- Chatham Middle School: Grades sixth through eighth
- Chatham High School: Grades ninth through twelfth
For the 2004 through 2005 school year, Chatham high school was recognized as a No Child Left Behind, Blue Ribbon School by the United States Department of Education. Then, in 2006, the high school was ranked the 12th top public high school in New Jersey out of 316 statewide schools.
Saint Patrick School was founded in 1872 and serves students in pre-kindergarten through eighth grade. The school operates under the auspices of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Paterson.
After years of discussion and planning, Chatham Library was founded in 1907. As it grew progressively larger, the library relocated several times. Its current location, on Main Street, was chosen after the Fairview Hotel burned down. The land was then purchased in the early 1920s by Charles L. Lum, and a brick building was constructed to house the library. In 1924, the new Chatham Library was dedicated and opened to the public.
Then, after the measure passed in 1974 joining the residents of Chatham Township with Chatham, the library was then renamed the Library of The Chathams. It is currently administered by six trustees who were appointed jointly through the two governments.
In 1985, the Library of The Chathams joined the Morris Automated Information Network (MAIN), which is an electronic database that links together all the public libraries in Morris County.
Back in the early 2000s, an expansion of the library was completed, costing nearly $4,000,000. The governments of Chatham and Chatham Township contributed a combined total of $2,000,000. The new addition was dedicated on January 11, 2004.

At sueadler.com, we enjoy being known for our ability to help people with their New Jersey midtown direct train line homes. We’ve always known the virtues of our easy commute and were excited to hear that last week, Summit NJ’s Planning Board voted to recommend the Common Council apply for Transit Village designation. The Transit Village Initiative, a program offered by the New Jersey Department of Transportation, encourages revitalization and the building up of commute towns, just like Summit! Being called a Transit Village showcases our use of public transportation and may attract newcomers to purchase a home in Summit. What do you think… is this a good idea?
The plan for the Transit Village are that it would begin at the train station and expand in a one-half mile area in all directions from the train station. This could also encourage developers to create more business in the area. If the Common Council agrees to submit an application, map area included in the Transit Village will be more clearly defined and granted within a few months, according to planning and development consultant member Edward Snieckus.
