Mendham Township Reviews

I have lived in Mendham Township for 15 years. I have raised my children and now my granddaughter is enjoying Mendham. The school system is extraordinary from full day Kindergarten to the highly ranked West Morris High School. My son said he was well prepared to face the academic demands of Engineering studies. Most of his friends also excelled in college. As for my husband and I we enjoy the outdoors every day, play paddle and tennis at Mendham Golf and Tennis, which is a relaxed informal sports club and have made good life long friends. So I can highly endorse the lifestyle offered by this area. I can also say we have the cleanest water from our well. And the air quality is without question clean.

I feel like there is a lot of opportunity for Mendham to grow as a community. There is not a lot of diversity, especially in the wealth or race. Another glaring issue with Mendham is the lack of commercial businesses, even tiny ones that would make a huge improvement to the quality of the town.
Absolutely loved it . Loved growing up in the area. Beautiful scenery. Great places to visit and great scenic drives. Mild winters.
