About Frelinghuysen Township
Boasting about 24 square miles of historic houses, old Native American camps, mills and wildlife, this township is teeming with natural beauty and environmental appreciation.
Visit nearby Jenny Jump State Forest, where you can hit the observatory for interstellar views, then head back out to the hundreds of acres of trails and rocky outcroppings for views of the Delaware Water Gap, Kittatinny Mountain and Great Meadows Valley.
Everybody loves a Mustang, and the Frelinghuysen Twp. School District is no exception (it’s the mascot!). From pre-K to sixth grade, kids attend elementary school before moving on to North Warren Regional High School, where they can join extracurriculars like the newspaper or robotics club, or choosing to attend the Warren County Technical School to learn trades ranging from welding to digital media and cosmetology to graphic arts.
