Township is a 10.8 square mile suburban community with land use that includes fine residential areas and Morris County’s largest industrial development.

Today Hanover Township presents an ideal suburban tapestry
of residential neighborhoods, parkland and commercial
& industrial businesses.
The Township is divided into two principal communities: Whippany and Cedar
Knolls, the main population center and is also the location of the county’s largest airport facility, Morristown Municipal Airport. Route 10 crosses the township and is lined with hotels, motels, golf driving ranges, stores, private swimming clubs, restaurants, banks, and picturesque churches.
Offering residents a wide mix of facilities for suburban living, the Township has a variety of business districts, highway discount centers, a fine educational system and a 72-acre municipal recreation center with 20-acres ponds for boating and fishing.
