CHATHAM, NJ - George Shepard Page came to Chatham in 1867 and bought hundreds of acres of land, which he named "Stanley."

That same year, the businessman built Hillside Mission Sabbath School on Hillside Avenue, followed by the permanent building named Stanley Hall in 1871. Two years later, the Stanley Church and Society were founded.

On Monday night, the Borough of Chatham Council will recognize the many contributions to the Chatham community by Stanley Congregational Church with a resolution in honor of its 150th anniversary.
