This small, unincorporated community is a part of the Hanover Township. It’s located in Morris County and is one of two unincorporated communities, together with Whippany, that make up Hanover.Cedar Knolls does have its own fire department and post office.

Another part of the community is known as Trailwood. Both Trailwood and a part of the Malapardis area are unique in that they are considered a part of Hanover Township but actually have a Morris Plains zip code.
To look at the history of Cedar Knolls, you have to look at the history of the whole area, including Hanover Township. It was established in 1685 by a number of New Englanders. It received its name from the House of Hanover, a German family whose descendant, George I, was king of Great Britain and the colonies.
The original Hanover Township consisted of Morris County and parts of Warren County and Sussex County. As more people moved to the area, Hanover became too large to be managed, and so it was divided. Hanover Township was reduced to its current size in 1798.
George Washington was known to visit Hanover Township often when his military force moved through the area, which it did often during the Revolutionary War. One of his residences in the area now operates as the Washington’s Headquarters Museum and is less than three miles from Executive Spine Surgery.
There are many different parks and wildlife refuges near our office. For example, you can visit the Troy Meadows Wetlands, the West Essex Park Conservancy, the Loantaka Brook Reservation, the Morristown National Historical Park, and the Great Swamp National Wildlife Refuge by driving less than 30 minutes from our office.
The Whippany Railway Museum is a great place to learn about the railway and to view a number of old locomotives. You can even take a train ride yourself during certain parts of the year! The museum is about ten minutes from us, so it’s a quick trip.
