Hackettstown, NJ

I have called Hackettstown my home for 30 years. Located in Northwest New Jersey, Hackettstown is typical small town USA. Although in the last 10 years, the Hackettstown area has seen much growth. M&M Mars World Headquarters is located here. Unlike Hershey, there are no tours given. But you can smell the chocolate being made every morning.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:A great place to call home.
  • Cons:Urban Sprawl is catching up with Hackettstown
  • In a nutshell:I am proud to call this my home.

    Having spent most of my life in Hackettstown it was a surprise and pleasure to open your page and see the picture of the fire engine with my brother riding in it. After seeing the blizzard pictures I now know why we retired to Tn . Thanks ! Great job.

    Sounds like a great place to be, if you like chocolate! Being the HQ of M&M ought to put it on the pilgrimage list for chocolate lovers.
