While you should stop by the Jacob Morrell House, where George Washington is said to have lodged while his army assembled in outlying fields, you don’t need to love history to enjoy Chatham. Located less than an hour’s drive west from New York City, this quaint town not only has a rich history, but also is one of the top suburbs in New Jersey to live because of its highly- rated schools, green spaces and charming town center. Residents absolutely adore the picturesque historic downtown area and the societal elements that come with bumping into neighbors and friends at the many unique shops and restaurants that are found there.

While you should stop by the Jacob Morrell House, where George Washington is said to have lodged while his army assembled in outlying fields, you don’t need to love history to enjoy Chatham. Located less than an hour’s drive west from New York City, this quaint town not only has a rich history, but also is one of the top suburbs in New Jersey to live because of its highly- rated schools, green spaces and charming town center. Residents absolutely adore the picturesque historic downtown area and the societal elements that come with bumping into neighbors and friends at the many unique shops and restaurants that are found there. Then there is the quiet, residential appeal of neighborhoods that are populated by gorgeous center-hall colonial and craftsman style homes adorned with American flags and front porch rockers. Annual events, such as Fishing Derby at Kelley’s Pond, the Fishawack Festival, the Fourth of July Parade and the Green Fair help in preserving the small town feel. The abundant green spaces, including parks, reservations and conservation areas, make it hard to believe you’re so close to one of the greatest cities in the world.
