Poised at the northern end of the borough, this quiet gem is rich in history. Graystones is located in Morris Heights. It marks the starting point of the first purchase of land from the Indians by William Penn's agents in 1682, the year before Penn himself arrived for his initial visit.
Preserved woodlands (reported to be a "climax forest") adjacent to Graystones serve as an educational experience and a peaceful natural setting for all boro residents to enjoy.
