MillburnMillburn began as a colonial settlement with agricultural origins, followed by a 19th century mill/factory economy and eventually became a Victorian — and later — residential community. There are many examples of this rich history still present in the township, from the Hessian House, the Cora Hartshorn Arboretum, the Paper Mill Playhouse, and
the many beautiful homes from all phases of our history, to its two historic districts, Short Hills Park and Wyoming. Millburn Township was once part of Elizabethtown and Newark settlements in New Jersey, created by a grant from Charles II to his brother James in 1664. In 1793 Springfield Township was created and it included Millburn. In 1857 Springfield became part of the new Union County and Millburn became a separate township within Essex County.
