Recent Gift Reflects Early Morristown History

Recent Gift Reflects Early Morristown History
The watercolor painting on the left is a recent gift to our library. It illustrates the family home of Major Daniel Phoenix, who was a local merchant, property owner and civic leader in the late 18th and early 19th centuries in Morristown. The house stood on the current site of the old Y.M.C.A building, which is now a commercial space known as the Courthouse Plaza. The building is located across from the Morris County Courthouse at 60 Washington Street in Morristown.

Read more about the story of this property's transformation through the years, as it passed through the hands of several owners.
