Historical Plaques for Chatham Township


The Historical Society of Chatham Township has initiated an exciting project to raise Township residents’ awareness of the heritage of their Town.  The first of an ongoing series of historic markers has been erected on Southern Boulevard designating Noe Pond originally situated on an 800 acre tract of farmland.

The second marker designating the Colony Association, a unique experiment in communal living, will be erected this month on Spring Street.  This marker is underwritten by the Township government.

A third marker will be placed on River Road identifying the site of Madame Beys Boxing Training Camp for famous prizefighters.

Additional markers under consideration are the Elias Boudinot property in Green Village, the Louis Noe Farmstead on Southern Boulevard and the old Greenhouse Section of the Township located near Hickory Tree Shopping Center.

The Historical Society is kicking off a fund drive to solicit contributions in pursuit of this project.  We will be unable to continue our efforts without help from our membership, Township Government, local businesses and our residents. The Society would appreciate any contributions sent to the Historical Society of Chatham Township, P.O. Box 262 Chatham, N. J. 07928.  Contributions are tax deductible.
