Formally known as Long Hill Township, there are four local towns: Millington, Stirling, Gillette, and the hamlet of Meyersville- all within 12 square miles. Nature abounds in this lovely rural residential community: it is bordered by the Passaic River and the Great Swamp National Wildlife Refuge- offering endless trails, birding, canoeing- special nature-themed events - making this a great option for explorers in nature-based programs; Boy and Girl Scout troops alike. The Raptor Trust takes in and cares for injured birds and seasonal festivals include holiday parties for children, seasonal activities, a classic car show, antique shows, Christmas tree lighting, and an array of sports offered through the Community Center's youth programs. Something for everyone!
There is a public lake in Stirling (with a small beach!) that is used for both swimming and ice skating. The schools offer grades K-1 in Gilette, 2-5 in Millington, and 6-8 in Stirling. High School students attend Watchung Hills Regional- a Blue Ribbon regional school serving Watchung and Warren students, as well.
Neighborhoods are lovely and scattered throughout the township offering an array of styles and price points- Newly constructed homes range from $1.5K and up, on 2-3 acres of land with a good selection of townhomes and condos. You don't have to go far to pick up a train into the City or fill your marketing needs with great stores offering fresh produce and wonderful meats. Nearby towns include Basking Ridge and Berkeley Heights, to expand your selection of shopping and entertainment. Don't forget to drop into the Stirling Hotel- your local neighborhood tavern- offering comfort foods and a seasonal outdoor garden dining experience.
