Long Hill Township is a township in Morris County, New Jersey, United States. As of the 2010 United States Census, the township's population was 8,702,[8][9][10] reflecting a decline of 75 (-0.9%) from the 8,777 counted in the 2000 Census, which had in turn increased by 951 (+12.2%) from the 7,826 counted in the 1990 Census.[20]

Long Hill Township was incorporated as Passaic Township on March 23, 1866. On September 1, 1922, part of what was then Passaic Township was taken to form Harding Township.[21] On November 3, 1992, by a 1,901-1,821 margin, the voters elected to change the name of the municipality to Long Hill Township, a change largely driven by the desire to avoid confusion with the City of Passaic, some 22 miles (35 km) away.[22][23]

Unincorporated communities within Long Hill Township include Gillette, Millington, and Stirling, and the hamlet of Meyersville. Homestead Park is a subdivision that was first developed in the 1920s.

St. Vincent de Paul School is a Catholic school in Stirling that operates under the auspices of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Paterson. St. Vincent is a private school and also serves as a Roman Catholic church for the Long Hill community.[75][76]

Library[edit]

The Long Hill Township Library began about 1880 in what was then known as Passaic Township. At the time a group of women in Millington formed a reading club purchasing a small number of books to trade amongst themselves. A similar group was established in Meyersville. In 1920, when the Morris County Library was built, the groups joined the county system and books on loan from the county were housed in the homes of the associations’ members.

By the 1950s, the Millington Association’s Library had relocated to the Town Hall and the Meyersville group occupied one room in the town’s Central School. In 1956, however, the Township asked the Millington Association to find other quarters, and the Central School location had steadily become less than satisfactory due to increasing enrollment. A referendum in the amount of $25,000 for the construction of a new building was submitted to the community. The measure passed by two votes. The new library opened in 1958 on Central Avenue in Stirling as the Passaic Township Free Public Library with a paid director and several volunteers.

By 1968, the library’s collection had grown substantially and plans were made for a new addition to the building. Another $25,000 was raised and the addition was completed in 1972. A later addition followed in the nineteen eighties. The library remained on Central Avenue until 2005 when an entirely new building was dedicated in April of that year. After the township formally changed its name to Long Hill Township in 1992, the Passaic Township Free Public Library was renamed as the Long Hill Township Free Public Library.

The Long Hill Township Library now occupies a site in Gillette, adjacent to Township Hall. The library contains 16,000 square feet (1,500 m2) of space and has a capacity for 72,000 books. The library is a member of the Morris Automated Information Network consortium, which offers residents of Long Hill Township have access to library materials at 37 area libraries.[77]

Transportation[edit]

Roads and highways[edit]

As of 2010, the township had a total of 59.57 miles (95.87 km) of roadways, of which 46.31 miles (74.53 km) were maintained by the municipality and 13.26 miles (21.34 km) by Morris County.[78]

Public transportation[edit]

New Jersey Transit rail service is available at the Gillette,[79] Millington[80] and Stirling[81] stations, offering service on the Gladstone Branch to Newark Broad Street Station and Hoboken Terminall.[82] [83][84]

Lakeland Bus Lines offers daily service on the Route 78 bus along Valley Road, which provides access between Bernardsville and the Port Authority Bus Terminal in Midtown Manhattan.[85]

Communications[edit]

Long Hill is in Area code 908. The legacy exchange is 908-647 (MIllington-7), which was one of the last exchanges in New Jersey to be converted from manual to dial operation.

The current cable company servicing the area is Comcast which provides local TV, internet, and phone service. Most of Long Hill now also has access to Verizon's FiOS service. Patriot Media no longer serves the area because it was sold to Comcast in early 2008.

Long Hill Township operates a public service television channel on Comcast (Channel 25) and Verizon (Channel 37).
