More on Harding Township New Jersey

Harding Township is a section in New Jersey just south of Morristown along the I-287 corridor. In the center is the small community of New Vernon. Nestled in Morris County in the Raritan Valley region, Harding Township is home to just under 4000 residents and has been considered by the New York Times as one of the most elegant of New Jersey's residential suburban areas.

Harding Township History

Homes for Sale in Harding Township NJRecorded history for Harding essentially begins in 1713 when Morris County was purchased from the Lenape Indians and made part of Burlington County under the ownership of the West Jersey Proprietors. The first recorded landowners were William Penn and James Logan in 1715 and 1717. As early as the 1790s, the center of Harding Township was referred to as New Vernon, although it was still considered part of Morristown. Over the next 100 years, small villages around Harding Township grew and the early part of the 20th century saw a new and different form of development. Large estates for wealthy families taking advantage of transportation improvements were popping up around the Township. Harding became the focus of high-end development and residents were strongly urged to preserve the historic rural landscape that attracted them to the area in the first place.

A group of businessmen joined forces with Marcus Northup to settle a long-standing dispute between the northern and southern sections of Passaic Township over the allocation of money for road repairs due to the growing fleets of automobiles in and out of the area. This led to the formation of Harding as a separate Township in 1922, named after Pres. Warren G Harding.

Residents in the early 20th century had ample resources to buy up large tracts of land and eventually the "New Vernon Neighborhood Restrictive Agreement" was created as an early form of zoning even though it was entirely privately enacted. These zoning laws stated that there shall be no trade, manufacture, or business of any kind on properties included in this agreement unless properly changed by new covenants. Mutual zoning largely limited development to low-density residential development and because of this agreement, very little has changed in Harding Township over the last 70 years.

Harding Township's "estate era" refers to a suburban development time between 1840 and 1940. This is where prominent families of American industrialists first moved to the township having made fortunes in the industrial development of the country. These residents pledge to restrict commercial usage and division of property until 1965 and set a minimum lot size of just 3 acres, although there was actual verbal understanding that 10 acres could be the minimum. Regardless, Harding Township includes many historical surviving estates and rule landscapes preserved through the efforts of the locals.
