Harding Township is a township in Morris County, New Jersey. The township includes unincorporated communities, a portion of Green Village and all of New Vernon. Other unincorporated communities, localities and place names located partially or completely within the township include Baileys Mill, Dixon Mill, Glen Alpin, Jockey Hollow Park, Logansville, Mount Kemble Lake, Olmstead Mills, Osborn Mill, Pleasantville, Sugar Loaf and Van Dorens Mill.
The 20-square-mile township is just 27 miles from Manhattan, but more than 40 percent of its area is protected open space, where building is forbidden. To some degree, this is because of Harding’s location. Large parts of two federally protected areas lie within its borders: the 7,000-acre Great Swamp National Wildlife Refuge, half within the township’s southeast corner, and in the opposite corner the 1,200-acre national historic site Jockey Hollow, mostly inside township lines.
Harding Township is limited in the amount of businesses and services it directly offers because the Township is so small. We have included services and businesses from nearby communities for your benefit.
