Washington Township is one of the last municipalities of Morris County where agricultural traditions continue to define the environment. The earliest important settlement in the Township was named "German Valley", a name that survived until World War I, when the present day "Long Valley" replaced it.

The fertile, 8 mile long valley, with the South Branch of the Raritan River at it's center, was the center of a Palatinate German community, and today includes some excellent examples of architecture from the second half of the 18th century and the first quarter of the 19th century. The heart of the settlement is now the German Valley Historical District, and is included in the National Register of Historic Places.
