The grandeur of the historic Wayside Inn exemplifies Denville's glorious past. Denville, the "Hub of Morris County," has retained its small-town atmosphere from its early days as a stop along the stage routes. Iron and good soil attracted the first settlers. Today, its scenic lakes, vibrant downtown, and many festivals attract tens of thousands each year. In Denville, the superb image collection of the Denville Historical Society & Museum provides spectacular views of this charming community. More than two hundred images and informative text about the town and its people fill the pages of this history. Along with the photographs of buildings, landscapes, and locals are images of historical figures, such as George Washington, who passed through on his way to winter quarters at Jockey Hollow, and William Penn, who first surveyed the area in the early 1700s, as well as local legends "Uncle" Jeddy Cooper and Rock Etam.
