A History of Millburn Township
by Marian Meisner
Marian Meisner wrote about it all -- from Millburn in the Ice Age to Millburn in the Space Age. Her exhaustive study of the history of the Township -- or Rum Brook or Vauxhall or Millville as it was sometimes called -- is the definitive resource for anyone with a question about or interest in Millburn's history.
According to her January 5, 1995 obituary in the Item, Marian Meisner was a Short Hills resident for 50 years. It further notes that in conjunction with the township's 1957 centennial celebration she researched and published a meticulous and thorough series of articles which were collected and presented to the community’s residents in the 1957 centennial book simply called Millburn; 1857-1957. That book is still available for loan in the Library, but the full history can also be found as the e-book that is accessible by clicking the title below.
