MILLBURN – BEAUTIFUL NEIGHBORHOODS AND EXCELLENT SCHOOLS

With a population of just over 20,000 residents, Millburn is a vibrant, historic community. In the 1830s, the building of the Morris & Essex Railroad sparked interest and growth in Millburn as the railroad regularly traveled through the town while transporting coal from Pennsylvania to New York. Today, Millburn boasts one of the best school systems in the country and conveniently sits on the Midtown Direct train line. The bustling downtown has world-class cuisine and is punctuated by idyllic Taylor Park where residents can be seen enjoying the pond, trails, baseball diamond and playground. Just a short walk from the downtown sits the famous Paper Mill Playhouse with Broadway quality shows and the charming Carriage House restaurant. Although the tree-lined streets and beautiful neighborhoods offer an enviable retreat after a busy day, there is always something to do for the residents of Millburn whether it be the local farmer's market, the annual Snowflake Parade or fun-filled summer street fairs.

Milburn was the feature of a New York Times article in 2000, If You're Thinking of Living In/Millburn Township, N.J., A Town Where Both Halves Live Well
