Denville is known as the "Hub of Morris County" for its location along major transportation routes at the center of the county. Routes 10 & 53, US Route 46, and I-80 all pass through Denville.
Native Lenape Native Americans were known to travel the Minisink Trail for centuries before Europeans arrived in New Jersey. Part of that trail cut across what is now southern Denville, roughly following the course of Route 10 and Mount Pleasant Turnpike. Daniel Denton led an expedition into the interior of northern New Jersey and in 1670 wrote the first English language description of the area. Some researchers would later conclude that it was Denton who lent his name to the naming of Denville.
Randolph township, whose motto is “Where Life is Worth Living”, is rich with American history.
New Jersey's first iron mine was established in Randolph in 1713, and for hundreds of years the mines advanced the development of the township, providing the raw materials for weapons used by the Continental Army during the American Revolutionary War. During the frigid winter of 1779-1780, Randolph served as a supply point for George Washington and the entire Continental army encampment at nearby Jockey Hollow.
The Randolph Historical Society has preserved the township's history & heritage in the Museum of Old Randolph. One of Randolph's oldest streets, Gristmill Road, is on the National Register of Historic Places.
