The Long Valley Mill

The building looms over the bustling Route 24, once called Chester Pike, just east of Long Valley center. At once, upon seeing it, you know that the mill holds a thousand stories and probably a thousand more secrets in its ancient timbers.

Recreation Announcements

Long Valley Friends of Fishing

 Did you know our township has several fishing resources?  We have Koehler’s Pond,  “Lough Molly” pond at Califon Fields, Coleman Road Park pond and Lake George at Schooley’s Mountain Park.   These are accessible bodies of water that offer residents opportunities to fish for common native fish such as pan fish, catfish and bass.  Some residents may have no knowledge of fishing or basic equipment needed to do so.

The Washington Township Public Library and Washington Township Recreation Department are interested in helping kids (15 and under) get to know about basic fishing and give it a try at one of our above noted resources.   The library will offer basic fishing kits in their “Library of Things” during the summer months of July and August.   The recreation department will solicit volunteers to form a small support group that can offer one or more basic fishing lectures to help parents and their interested children know about the available equipment, where to fish, and how to fish.   The volunteers can also help maintain the loaned equipment during the Washington Township Summer Fishing season. 

This offering is dependent on volunteers.   If you are interested and able, please attend a planning meeting at the Washington Township Library on Saturday, May 14th at 11AM.   For questions about this meeting contact Jacqueline Zuzzi at the library, 908-876-3596 or Darlene Hatcher at the WT Recreation office, 908-876-5941 or email This email address is being protected from spambots.
