There’s a few reasons why I chose to be a contractor in Morris County, New Jersey. It has everything… open spaces, wooded areas, historical homes, and modern city conveniences. Now based in Chester, NJ, I’ve been a contractor here for thirty years and I plan to stick around for a long while.
One of the great perks of being a contractor in Morris County is having the opportunity to enhance some of the fantastic architectural and historic homes here. Many of which are the 1920’s Victorian style “gingerbread” homes that have lots of ornamental decorations you don’t see anymore.
We can talk all about work another time, but today we are talking about why Morris County is a really fun place to play.
Bike, Eat, Shop, Repeat
One of my favorite ways to spend an afternoon is walking the dogs along Patriots Path. There are miles and miles of single track trails for mountain bikers, trail runners and hikers. The path links all the county parks together and runs along the Whippany, Black, and Raritan rivers; which happens to be the most pristine trout producing streams in the entire state.
If I were forced to choose, I’d have to say the downtown Chester area is my favorite. There’s always something going on around there: quaint shops and craft fairs and food… lots of food. Everything you can image from the Thai Kitchen to The Publick House, Tavern and Inn. I’ve also heard Redwood’s Grill & bar is pretty great!
In fact, the Chester, New Jersey Farmer’s Market is one great way to see and taste all the goodness Morris County has to offer.
In case you’ve never been, the Chester Farmer’s Market is located on Perry Street in the Chester Historic District, and it runs every Sunday between 10am and 3pm (during the summer months.) If you happen to see me there, be sure to stop and say hello!
Chester is full of history too, Chester, New Jersey was once known as “Black River” until January 29th, 1770 when residents were granted a request to create their own township; which is now known as Chester.
It was also the backbone of the fast-moving mining boom during the Civil War, but later returned to farming of sheep, dairy and fruits and vegetables.
Doing Our Homework
I consider it an honor to be able to work on these homes for as long as I have. I love living and working in Morris County, New Jersey. It’s always a pleasure to help our local homeowners by helping them achieve their dream home goals.
