The Borough of Wharton offers old-fashioned charm and a small town appeal, within its interesting borders. The 2.2 square miles of this unique place in Morris County, boasts such charm, that even the musician Cyndi Lauper couldn't resist. It was here in 1984 that she filmed her music video for her hit song "Time After Time," cementing Wharton into timelessness and music history with her.
Wharton Borough prides itself on diversity as well, in terms of its places to visit, things to do, and its population of more than 6,500 residents. Like many of the neighboring communities, Wharton found its roots and growth in the Morris Canal and was the bedroom community for those who manned the mines, blast furnaces and mills. Formed in 1895 from the communities of Port Oram, Irondale, Luxemburg, Maryville, and Mount Pleasant, and taken from portions of Randolph and Rockaway Townships, the municipality was originally known as Port Oram. It was renamed Wharton in 1902 in honor of Joseph Wharton, one of Wharton's first prominent citizens, who was heavily involved with the area's mining industry. Today, Wharton still recognizes its mining heritage and contributions to the Morris Canal, while remaining a bedroom community for those who work in places as far away as Manhattan. See more
Finding an apartment in Wharton that accepts your pet may not be easy, but it’s very possible. Keep in mind, most of the time you’ll have to pay a premium for bringing your dog along in your new apartment. Some apartments require you to pay monthly pet rent, others will ask for a non-refundable pet fee or a refundable pet deposit.
While landlords and property management companies have varying pet policies, most of them limit the number of dogs you can bring to your apartment and include breed and weight restrictions.
If your pet falls under some of the restrictions outlined in the pet policy, it’s still worth asking the landlord if they can make an exception for your dog. Preparing a pet resume ahead of time could help you build the case for your furry friend. Make sure to include information on behavioral training your dog went through over the years and proof of vaccinations. If you can, include references from your former landlord and/or neighbors.
