Talk about old money. New Vernon can trace its history back to a colonial settlement, and many of the country estates here have been passed down through families for generations. Some homes in this small community are so distinctive, they're on the National Register of Historic Places.

Meanwhile, the town's youngest members benefit from generous local spending on public schools. They may also attend one of several private schools in the area.
