HANOVER TOWNSHIP — On July 13, 2022, the Morris County Board of Commissioners approved $2.65 million in grants from the County’s 2022 Historic Preservation Trust Fund to help preserve, restore, or protect 29 historic sites in 21 towns across Morris County. Hanover Township was awarded a $36,000 grant concerning renovations to the Samuel Tuttle House. The grant will assist with the preparation of construction documents related to exterior repairs including building structure and clapboard siding, interior finish restoration, and repair. The restoration of the Tuttle House is a multi-phase project which will result in the house being used as a museum in the future.

The c. 1796 Tuttle House was constructed in the Federal architecture style by one of the early founding families of Whippany and was occupied by four generations of the Tuttle family. The Tuttle House remained a residence until the Spada family donated the structure to Hanover Township in late 2019. Members of the Township Committee were thrilled that the Spada family donated the house to the Township so the town can continue the legacy of the Tuttle House.  Member Cahill stated, “This has been a long time coming and we are happy to see it happening – it will be a great addition to the Township and to our history.”

The Morris County Historic Preservation Trust Fund was created to help support the preservation of the County’s exceptional abundance of historic resources. The Township has been a past recipient of these grants for the restoration of the Whippany Burying Yard and will continue to work with the County in preserving the rich cultural history of Morris County and Hanover.
