Mendham is a borough in Morris County, New Jersey, in the United States, some 40 miles due west of New York City. As of the 2000 Census, the borough population was 5,097.

While New Jersey was an English colony, Mendham Township was formed on March 29, 1749 as a new governmental entity, from portions of Hanover Township, Morris Township, and Rockaway Township. Sites had been established by settlers from the early 18th century and villages named. After the American War of Independence, the township was incorporated under the same name by an Act of the New Jersey Legislature on February 21, 1798. Portions of the township were taken to create Randolph Township on January 1, 1806.

Mendham was incorporated as a borough by an Act of the New Jersey Legislature on May 15, 1906, from portions of Mendham Township.[8] This was driven by the people who inhabited what became the Borough wanting public water and sewer services while those that lived in what remained the Township (villages of Brookside and Ralston) felt it was cost prohibitive in their more rural areas.
