  • History

    • The town’s history dates back to May 1666 when Connecticut settlers landed on the shores of the Passaic River. The township’s founders purchased land, known as the Newark Settlement a few months later in July 1666. Residents who wished to farm moved westward into surrounding communities and eventually purchased land from the Lenapes. Fast forward to 1836 the Morris and Essex railway was developed with a single track transporting residents between South Orange and Orange. Fast forward to today, the Township of South Orange Village is a quaint but active residential community with famous gaslights dotting the streets, beautiful Tudors, Victorian and Colonial homes, beautiful parks, scenic reservation, and a bustling Village center. The Village is a popular and well sort after place to live by those who want an easy commute to New York City combined with the charm and engaged community experienced by its residents.
