East Hanover is considered the gateway to Morris County. What was once farmland is now 8.2 square miles of a bustling small city with homes and shops. It is home to Mondolez (Kraft Foods Div.) and Novartis Pharmaceuticals.

The name Hanover came from the House of Hanover in Germany. This namesake was given to the Township of Hanover (which included present-day East Hanover) on December 7, 1720 as a sign of respect to King George I of the House of Hanover, the British king who ruled over the American colonies in the 18th century.

Unique among towns, East Hanover is defined by the joining of two rivers, the Whippany River to the west and north and the Passaic River to the east and north. This geographic effect led to the early name of East Hanover, "Hanover Neck."

Since the creation of Hanover Township in 1720, its size has been considerably decreased as the population of the area has increased. Originally encompassing Morris County and parts of both Sussex and Warren County, Hanover Township became too unwieldy for a single local government as time passed. The members of the government felt that Hanover Township needed to break apart into smaller towns that could provide more responsive local control, even if it meant increased taxes to support new facilities for each.

East Hanover was formed as a township on March 12, 1928.
