Morris Canal Comes to Montville Twp is the subject of the next Glimpses of the Past History Series at the Montville Township Historical Society¹s program, February 13 (Monday), 7:30 p.m. in the Montville Township Senior House, 356 Main, Montville.
The Morris Canal is 102 miles along its entire length. Approximately two and a half miles run through Montville and Towaco. Montville has three planes due to the height the canal must overcome. The canal impacted the area, bringing in workers, taverns, stores and new way of life. A murder occurs impacting the residents while the canal also provided employment and goods.
We have lots of new photos which provide details of the canal.
