    Go Get Funky...

    by ChadSteve1975 Written Sep 10, 2006

    The Funky Monkey.

    Whoa it was quiet when we visited. But it was a Wednesday night.

    Morristown is a town full of major corporate headquarters where they send receuits from all around to do training. So on most nights there are still people out for a drink. Scouting the scene so to speak.

    Anyway we stopped in here as were had to visit it. It was ok. They have a dancefloor up the back if you're so inclided. And it wasn't too busy. But I'm sure it is on weekends.

    Beautiful building

    by mpinar Written Mar 21, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The "new" Morris County Courthouse was built between 1826 and 1827. It was designed by two local architects, Joseph M. Lindsley of Morristown and Lewis Carter of Chatham, and is one of New Jersey┬┤s most important public buildings in the Federal style. For many years, bells rang from the belfry at the start of court and when fire threatened a building in town.

    Above the front entrance to the courthouse stands a wooden statue of Justice. She holds a scale to symbolize the balanced judicial system, and a sword to represent the protection of individual rights. Morristown┬┤s statue of Justice is unlike most others because she is not blindfolded.

    The Seeing Eye

    The first place in the US to train guide dogs for the blind. The tour is really interesting and the puppies are too cute to miss. It is amazing to see how smart these animals are and the trust between the blind person and the dog. You can see dogs and new person/dog pairings in training all over town. The final exam includes the stairs at the Morristown train station.

    The Morris Museum

    My favorite exhibit was the American Indian exhibit. It was neat to learn about the Lenee Lenape indians that used to live in the area. The huge taxidermy animals were pretty awesome when I was little, too.

    Morristown National Historic...

    Morristown National Historic Site - A combination of numerous historic sites thoughout the area.
    Jockey Hollow - One of the numerous places the colonial army stayed at during the Revolutionary War. Very good tour is given and the army barracks are interesting. Kept my attention even as kid.
    Wick House and Farm - As a horse crazy girl, this was my favorite! Gotta love Tempe for hiding her horse in the attic. :)
    Ford Mansion - Seeing how they lived years ago was lots of fun. There are many historic sites in this country, but this remains one of my favorites.

    Tempe Wick House in Jockey Hollow
    Adjacent to the Morristown NHP Visitor Center in Jockey Hollow is a replica of the Tempe Wick House. This was the oldest structure in the Morristown area. The replica house was built at its original site. There is a nice farm adjacent to the house with a garden. The area is totally accessible to the public.

    Located at the highest point in the town of Morristown, this spot offers a great panoramic view of the area. It also was used as a lookout point during the Revolutionary War.
