    If you love nature, quiet walks in serene forests, and spending some time with wildlife, Bernardsville has plenty of attractions you'll love. The Scherman-Hoffman Wildlife Sanctuary, 11 Hardscrabble Road, has a walk through, bird-feeder filled path with the Passaic River nearby.The vigilant bird watcher can sometimes see chickadees, titmice, nuthatches, and wrens. The NJ Audubon Society meets here and maintains a lovely facility for bird lovers on the grounds of the 276-acre preserve.

    The Cross Estate Gardens, 61 Jockey Hollow Road, is a great walk anytime, but especially in the spring and summer when their floral displays are in full bloom. There are formal and native gardens, a wisteria-covered pergola, and a mountain laurel allee on the grounds. Peony's Envy, 34 Autumn Hill Drive, is a flower garden and nursery that has over 30,000 peony plants, many of which bloom for a short time; usually in May. It's a stunning mosaic of color.

    Flowers and trees are beautiful to look at, but if you would rather try chipping a golf ball over them, visit the Somerset Hills Golf Course at 180 Mine Mount Road. Course par 71, features beautiful views of the Watchung Hills along its 6,572 yards of golf! Another great way to enjoy nature!

    The township of Bernardsville has deep roots as a colonial-era settlement that has managed to maintain its small town charm. Bernardsville was once known as Vealtown, and was renamed in 1840 after Sir Francis Bernard, a provincial governor of New Jersey. During the Revolutionary War, General Charles Lee; second in command to George Washington, rested his troops in Bernardsville; Lee was captured by the British at Widow White's Tavern in town.

    Bernardsville did not develop much until after the Civil War, when in 1872 the Gladstone Branch railroad line was built through the town. After that, well-to-do New Yorker's moved into the area, and the town developed an upscale standard of living that continues to this day. The culture of the New York residents is evident in Bernardsville, with a "little Italy" section town that mimics New York's famous Mulberry Street.

    In recognition of the colonial character and history of Bernardsville, the New Jersey State Review Board for Historic Sites recommended the creation of the Olcott Avenue Historic District in 2009. Many of the buildings in town date back to the early 19th century, such as the building that houses Borough Hall; once a mill and distillery known as Bunn's Mill. An elegant small town with industrial history, situated in a country setting; there's little wonder Bernardsville has been a choice residence for many in the New York area.
