Montrose Park is a residential neighborhood in the Township of South Orange Village, New Jersey, characterized by elegant, large-scale homes, dating from the last quarter of the nineteenth century through the 1930s.
These architecturally imposing homes are set on large, landscaped lots, outlined by bluestone sidewalks and curbs, framed by mature trees and shrubbery, and lit by Victorian gaslight.
The Montrose Park Historic District is significant both historically and architecturally. Several streets were originally developed between 1867 and 1874 as part of a development intended to attract wealthy New York businessmen to rural South Orange, recently made accessible to the city by train.
When Montrose Park’s impressive architecture is combined with its winding, tree-lined streets, and landscaped boulevards, the feeling of a late nineteenth to early twentieth century suburban, residential enclave is readily conveyed.
Our mission is to promote, preserve and beautify the Montrose Park Historic District, maintain its integrity and enhance the quality of life for all residents.
