Total Hunt Time
About 3 to 4 hours, depending on options selected
Settled in 1715, Morristown has a rich and significant history…as varied as any city in colonial America. It was here that George Washington and the Continental Army encamped during the winters of the Revolutionary War. Benedict Arnold was court-martialed at Dickerson’s Tavern on Spring Street in Morristown, not for treason, but on lesser charges related to profiteering from military supplies at Philadelphia. And Alexander Hamilton courted and wed Betsy Schuyler at the Morristown residence used by Washington’s personal physician. In the 19th Century, Samuel F. B. Morse and Alfred Vail built the first telegraph at the Speedwell Iron Works in Morristown. (The first telegraph message was ‘A patient waiter is no loser.’) Today, the town has a quieter, less-momentous feeling, hosting a wide selection of restaurants and boutique shops. But the echoes of history remain. During your Morristown treasure hunt, you may encounter a statue dedicated to seeing eye dogs; a plaque about valiant telephone workers; and a sundial commemorating General George Washington.
