Chatham Borough, NJ Community Information

History:

The village that now is Chatham first was settled by Europeans in 1710 in Morris Township, within the Province of New Jersey. It was settled because the site already was the location of an important crossing of the Passaic River as well as being close to a gap in the Watchung Mountains and on the path of a well-worn Native American trail. Changing its name to Chatham by 1773, it was an active community fighting in the American Revolutionary War. In February 12, 1806, Chatham Township was formed, taking its name from the village, and including several other villages. On August 19, 1892, based on a referendum held ten days earlier, Chatham adopted a new village form of government allowed within townships. Chatham later was incorporated as an independent borough by an Act of the New Jersey Legislature on March 1, 1897, replacing the village form of government.
