independence from Great Britain.
The area was inhabited by Native Americans for more than 2,800
years prior to exploration by Europeans. The first European
settlements in this portion of New Jersey were established by the
Swedes and Dutch in the early 1600s where a significant trade in
furs existed between the natives and the Europeans at temporary
posts. It became part of the Dutch colony of New Netherland
, but the English seized
control of the region in 1664, which was granted to Sir George
Carteret and John Berkeley, 1st Baron Berkeley of Stratton, as the
Province of New
. In British colonial records, the first permanent
European settlement at Morristown occurred in 1715, when a village
was founded as New Hanover
by migrants from New York and
Connecticut. Morris County was created on March 15, 1739, from
portions of Hunterdon County. The county was named for the popular
Governor of the Province, Lewis

Morristown from January to May. Washington had his headquarters
during that first encampment at Jacob Arnold's Tavern located at
the Morristown Green in the center of the town. Morristown was
selected for its extremely strategic location (between Philadelphia
and New York and near New England). It was also chosen for the
skills and trades of the residents, local industries and natural
resources to provide arms, and what was thought to be the ability
of the community to provide enough food to support the army.
The churches were used for inoculations

Arnold's Tavern, was eventually moved a half mile south of the

directly across the street.

The winter of 1780 was the worst winter of the Revolutionary War.

to emulate them (unsuccessfully).

Saint Elizabeth was founded at Morristown in 1860 by the Sisters of Charity.It
was the first secondary school for young women in the state.
When the religious order founded the academy, they moved their
mother house and convent from Newark onto a massive parcel that was
located on the developing "Millionaires Row" that stretched from
Lonataka Parkway to the center of Morristown (described popularly
as the "inland Newport"
because of the many wealthy
families who built grand homes along the route). In 1865,
Morristown changed its incorporation to the new "town" category
with a boundary that then excluded their large land holdings.
Thirty years later, that boundary line officially delineated two
governmental jurisdictions in 1895 when Morristown was formally set
off from the rest of Morris Township. The College of
Saint Elizabeth was founded in 1899 as part of the complex and,
notably, it is the oldest women's college in New Jersey and one of
the first Catholic colleges in the United States to award degrees

jurisdiction of Morristown as a smaller area, a community
