Fredon Township, incorporated in 1904 became the last town in Sussex County and the only so named in the Country. Fredon, a name proposed for our nation in the early 1800's means a place of peace and freedom. The Route 94 crossroads, known as Coursen's Corners, became a town center in the early 1800's when the Coursen Family had a school, store and blacksmith shop here. The Fredon Post Office operated from 1834 to 1901. The Paulins Kill forms the town's Western Border. The East-West Jersey Partition Line crosses through the township. John W. Griggs became New Jersey's Governor in 1895.
