First settled around 12,500 years ago, the name ‘Parsippany’ comes from the Native American word meaning ""the place where the river winds through the valley"". As recently as the 1970s, archaeologists discovered a series of rock paintings in a cave to the west of the town, meaning this historical city is always on the brink of discovering more about its intriguing past.
