Beginning in the late 19th Century, Morris County became a hub for Gilded Age millionaires, who constructed palatial estates that dotted the landscape. Nowhere was the volume of such wealth better captured than on the Atlas of Part of Morris Co., N.J. Embracing the Town of Morristown, The Boroughs of Madison, Florham Park, Chatham and Mendham, Morris Township and Parts of Chatham, Hanover, Mendham, and Passaic Townships, published by A.H. Mueller in 1910. In Part 1 of 2, catch a glimpse of the unmatched opulence once found in the area.
