Long Hill Township, composed of five distinct boroughs located along the Passaic River, has existed for hundreds of years as a lush, vibrant community in northern New Jersey.Once the homeland of the Lenape Indians, the five boroughs of Long Hill Township (formerly Passaic Township) developed independently to support one another in the fields of industry, agriculture, education, and transportation, creating a bustling and eclectic small-town community in the midst of nature's splendor. From images of a leisurely buggy ride in the lazy afternoon sun to others of families working together in the fields or on the site of a new stone church, Mary Lou Weller's remarkable new photographic history of Long Hill documents the past of the township in moving detail. A reflection of the community through the eyes of this fourth-generation resident, Long Hill Township chronicles the area's history from the Civil War through the early 1970s.
