Long Hill Township is a township in Morris County, New Jersey, United States. As of the United States 2000 Census, the township population was 8,777.

Long Hill Township was incorporated as Passaic Township on March 23, 1866. On September 1, 1922, part of what was then Passaic Township was taken to form Harding Township.[8] On November 3, 1992, by a 1,901-1,821 margin, the voters elected to change the name of the municipality to Long Hill Township, a change largely driven by the desire to avoid confusion with the City of Passaic, some 22 miles (35 km) away.[9][10]

The township consists of four communities: the enclaves of Gillette, Millington, and Stirling, and the hamlet of Meyersville. Homestead Park is the name of the first subdivision in the township, developed in the 1920s.
