Mayor William J. Chegwidden

welcomes you to

the Borough of Wharton,


Morris County, New Jersey  Located in the heart of Morris County.

Wharton is a terrific town full of pride, tradition, and progress!





As the weather continues to get colder I am looking forward to one of Wharton’s biggest events, Hallowharton on November 1st. This year it’s going to be bigger and better than ever. Starting at 3 p.m. there are events until 9 p.m. at Main Street, the Firehouse, the Library, and at the Canal. You can see the full schedule on our homepage.

Flu shots are now available from town nurse Carol Miller. Please call her at 973-361-8444x2715 to make an appointment to get one. They are $15 unless you have Medicare.

Coming up in November is the Veteran’s Eve Parade at the American Legion on November 10th and a Veteran’s Appreciation Program at the Wharton Library.

Newly available is tax information on the Borough website. You can look up tax information by address here.

As Fall moves into Winter there are a lot of exciting things happening in Wharton!
