Hardyston History & Heritage Society

Welcome to

Hardyston Township has been home to Lenni Lenape for thousands of years. Pioneers and settlers have been here for over three hundred years.

Hardyston Township was formed from a larger tract on February 25, 1762.

Over time, Hardyston Township has had areas form their own governments: Vernon (1793), Sparta (1845), Franklin (1913), Hamburg (1920).

This is a land of great natural resources and wonderful ways to enjoy one’s life.
