Morristown National Historical Park was established in 1933 under the auspices of President Herbert Hoover and the sixty-fifth Congress.

The management of Morristown National Historical Park is driven by its mission, which was spelled out in the General Management Plan.

This section of the website will refer you to many of the documents that help the National Park Service accomplish that mission for inspiration of this and future generations.
