Morris Township, with a population of more than 22,000 people, wraps entirely around Morristown and encompasses almost 16 square miles. This doughnut-shaped suburb is roughly five times the size of the county seat; and therefore, it is also home to many of its commuting professionals. The estimated median home value is $559,000; the estimated median household income is $131,596.

Within the township’s boundary are several, smaller, unincorporated communities, the most well-known of which is Convent Station.

Convent Station has Morris Township’s NJ Transit stop, where commuters can take the Morristown Line to Newark Broad Street, Secaucus, Hoboken, and New York Penn Station. From Convent Station to New York Penn Station, the train ride is approximately one hour and 10 minutes on the Morris & Essex Line. Due to the township’s easy access to both New York City and Morristown, it is an ideal bedroom community for families and Business professionals.

Historic homes and colonials, in particular, are iconic in Morris Township. The township was incorporated in the mid-1700s, predating the American Revolution. Portions of what was originally Morris Township were redistributed and became part of Roxbury, Mendham, Morristown, and Chatham.

Morris Township is part of the Morris School District, which shares a large, public high school with Morristown and Morris Plains. Of the 611 school districts in New Jersey, the Morris School District ranks 316th.

Perhaps because of this mid-range ranking, over 30% of children from Morris Township attend private elementary, middle, and high school. The township’s emphasis on education transcends the generations. Almost 35% of Morris Township’s residents have a graduate degree, and nearly 40% have a bachelor’s degree.

Higher education also has a strong presence in Morris Township. The all-girls, catholic university, College of Saint Elizabeth, and the yeshiva university, the Rabbinical College of America, are both located there.
