Morristown Apartments for Rent
In 1777, General George Washington was headquartered in Arnold’s Tavern, an unassuming wooden structure located on the Morristown Green. The Green also held the county courthouse and jail until 1827. The tavern burned in 1918, but the Green is still the heart of Morristown. It is a beautiful green space, containing benches and period lighting beneath a canopy of trees. As it has always been, the Green is the gathering place for Morristown residents, hosting events, concerts, and festivals.
Morristown was founded in 1715. Known as the “military capital of the American Revolution,” the city played a pivotal role in the war. The Morristown National Historical Park contains three important Revolutionary War sites: Jockey Hollow, Fort Nonsense, and the Ford Mansion. The mansion was built in 1774 and served as Washington’s headquarters from December 1779 to June 1780. He stayed here with his staff, including Alexander Hamilton and James McHenry.
