Normandy Park Historic District is located in Normandy Park.
John Dodd Canfield (1845-1910), president of the Morristown Land and Improvement Company, designed and developed Normandy Park beginning in 1890. The original character of the neighborhood, where houses on large lots were set 200 feet back from a tree-lined boulevard illuminated by gaslights, can still be seen.
The development attracted affluent people who preferred a neighborhood environment to the isolation of a large estate. Residents included movie magazine and director Eugene V. Brewster, homeopathic medicine magnate Frederick Humphreys, and suffragist Alison Low Turnbull Hopkins.
