2013 marks the 100 year anniversary of the founding of Denville. Though history suggests that settlers may have arrived in Denville as early as 1690, and our earliest documents come from survey maps of William Penn and other proprietors in 1715, we mark our founding in 1913 when we became a township separate from Hanover and Rockaway. Through the years Denville has evolved from an ordinary town along the Morris Canal, marked by farming and the discovery of iron ore, to the “Hub of Morris County.”
2013 will be a year to celebrate the development of Denville, and the individual communities that make it so unique. Among the events that will mark this anniversary will be a Centennial Gala, parade, and picnic. There will also be programs throughout Denville Schools celebrating Denville’s rich history.
For information on upcoming events and how to get involved follow the Denville Centennial on our website, Facebook and Twitter. Be a part of this memorable community celebration!
