German Valley Historical Marker

A new historic site marker was recently erected in Long Valley near the Zion Lutheran Church.  The marker was obtained by the Historical Society through the Morris County Heritage Commission with generous support from the Board of Chosen Freeholders.  A dedication is planned for 2014 as part of the celebration of New Jersey’s 350th Anniversary.
