About Mendham

Mendham Township is situated in the southern part of Morris County, several miles from the county seat of Morristown and about an hour’s drive from New York City.  Brookside and Ralston—once known by its Native American name of Roxiticus--are long-established hamlets in this picturesque township, where winding country roads, vast estate properties and notable historic sites impart a decidedly rural feel. Mendham Township and the smaller Mendham Borough are commonly referred to simply as Mendham.  The township was founded in 1749 and measures about 18 square miles. 


People have been drawn to the natural beauty of Mendham Township for centuries; it has also been a more-recent home to notable residents including New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, actor and star of the Game of Thrones television series Peter Dinklage, and the late singer Whitney Houston.
