Fort Nonsense Damage Repair Completed

A partnership with the Washington Association of New Jersey helped to make possible the reopening of the Fort Nonsense area of Morristown National Historical Park, which was damaged by a severe thunderstorm on July 14, 2016. The storm caused significant tree damage at Fort Nonsense, including many fallen trees and limbs that made the area inaccessible and unsafe. The amount of damage and size of the fallen trees exceeded the park’s resources of manpower and equipment, but the Washington Association of New Jersey (WANJ), the park’s legislated partner, provided over $10,000 from its Fort Nonsense Endowment Fund.
