Today Mendham is a residential suburb with historic homes from grand houses to charming cottages laid out along tree-lined roadways. But once, Mendham was a thriving hub of industry with grist mills, saw mills, iron mines, charcoal hearths, iron forges and at least one distillery. One road, known as Brookside because of its location near a stream, sported a shoe factory, carpet mill, glass works, iron works and tannery. Despite the abundance of natural resources and major industry efforts after the Civil War industry began to dwindle in Mendham, due in part to the late arrival of a single railroad in 1888 that operated a mere 25 years before closing. Farming was and has remained from the mid 1700s until recent years as the mainstay of industry in the Mendham Township area.
