About Chatham Borough
When CNN and Money magazine ranked Chatham ninth on its list of The 100 Best Places to Live in the United States in 2005, they described it as more like a “small New England town than a bustling Big Apple ‘burb.” Indeed, Chatham’s vintage architecture, strategic location 25 miles from Manhattan and abiding sense of community make it a desirable destination in southeastern Morris County.  Nearby communities include Summit, New Providence, Berkeley Heights, Harding Township, Madison, Florham Park, Morristown, Short Hills, Millburn and Livingston.

Chatham Borough and Chatham Township share a common heritage and are sometimes jointly referred to as The Chathams. Although the two are actually separate municipalities, they do share a library, school district, volunteer ambulance squad, zip code and post office. Residents have been known to say the Township and Borough are really just like one town that happens to have two different governments.
