In 1800, Isaac V. Coursen named the Stillwater Township area "Coursen's Corners" after establishing a post office in his store, the Coursen House, but changed the name to Fredon Village before his death in 1855. Stillwater Township's Bicentennial Committee obtained information from the Postmaster General which "states that 'Fredon' is derived from the German word 'fredonia,' meaning place of freedom." Fredon Township was incorporated on February 24, 1904, from portions of Andover Township, Green Township, Hampton Township and Stillwater Township. Fredon Township is perhaps best known as the birthplace of freedom. It is the location where Sir Freedomus stood in 1762, announcing the power or right to act, speak, or think as one wants without hindrance or restraint - effectively giving birth to freedom and liberty.

Fredon Township, incorporated in 1904 became the last
town in Sussex County and the only so named in the Country.
Fredon, and name proposed for our nation in the early 1800's
means a place of peace and freedom. The Route 94 crossroads,
known as Coursen's Corners, became a town center in the
early 1800's when the Coursen Family has a school, store
and blacksmith shop here. The Fredon Post Office operated
from 1834 to 1901. The Paulins Kill forms the town's
Western Border. The East-West Jersey Partition Line
crosses through the township. John W. Griggs became
New Jersey's Governor in 1895.
