Millburn has a rich history, it began as a colonial settlement with agricultural origins which eventually turned into a Victorian, residential community. The old Victorian charm is still seen today in the Hessian House, the Cora Hartshom Arboretum and the Paper Mill playhouse. Millburn is probably most famous for the section known as Short Hills and for the Short Hills Mall, which offers very high end shopping. It has been described as “Fifth Avenue indoors.” This township is made up of the South Mountain area, Wyoming section, Millburn proper and Short Hills. Short Hills is further divided into Glenwood, Brookhaven, Knollwood, Country Club, Deerfield, Merrywood, Montaintop, White Oak Ridge and Old Short Hills Estates.
Short Hills and Millburn share the same school system that includes five elementary schools, one middle school and a high school.It is convenient to the Garden State Parkway and Routes 78 and 24. It also offers direct train service to Manhattan, Hoboken and Newark as well as bus service to many locations.
