A state-designated “regional center,” Morristown is the County Seat of Morris County  and the home of both Morristown Memorial Hospital and a wide range of cultural facilities.  Morristown served as General George Washington's headquarters for two different winter encampments during the Revolutionary War. Morristown is totally surrounded geographically by the separate municipality of Morris Township. Morristown became characterized as "the military capital of the American Revolution" because of its strategic role in the war for independence from Great Britain.

Almost 100 years after the American Revolution began, Morristown was incorporated on April 6, 1865, within Morris Township, and it was formally set off from the township in 1895.
