More About Harding Township

At the center of Harding Township is the quaint village of New Vernon, which is comprised of two delicatessens, post office, miscellaneous offices, and a historic Presbyterian church. Forbes magazine ranked the New Vernon zip code, 07976, as one of "the 25 most expensive zip codes" in the country in 2008. The township is most noted for its expansive estates, fox hunts, bridle paths and horse farms.

Town History

In 1922, several estate owners, desirous of better roads and wishing to deter suburban development, led the movement to form Harding Township. Therefore the township was created from the northern half of Passaic Township (the southern portion is now called Long Hill Township) and was named after president Warren G. Harding.The desire to preserve Harding’s rural character was evident by 1928. An unusual private land preservation effort was started with the New Vernon Neighborhood Restrictive Agreement, when several estate owners convinced many others to place restrictive covenants on their land. This pre-zoning, voluntary effort to limit development and save the pastoral qualities of over 1000 acres across Harding Township influenced subsequent zoning codes and helped preserve the landscape.
