Welcome to Florham Park

Settled in the late 17th century, the area that would become Florham Park was originally known for its well-made brooms. In fact, it was often referred to as Broomtown. But by the late 1800s, the area from Madison to Morris Township began to attract dozens of wealthy bankers, who built seasonal homes here. Today, you will find a tightly knit suburb nestled beyond the main drag of Columbia Turnpike steeped in history and community spirit. In fact, the town's Fourth of July celebrations and parade are said to be the longest running in New Jersey. A preserved Little Red Schoolhouse still exists from 1886 that today serves as a center for local dances, religious gatherings, and town meetings. Situated only 40 minutes outside of New York City, this close family friendly community is a great value compared to its more expensive neighbors Livingston, Millburn, and Madison.
