History:

Boonton Township’s recorded history began about 1710 when William Penn, the Quaker land speculator, located in the northern valley his Lot No. 48, which contained by actual survey 1,430 prime field and woodland acres. James Bollen, whose bordering “plantation” stretching south toward the Tourne was described as “situate on the fork of Rockaway with an Indian plantation in it,” mapped his 1,507 acres in 1715. In 1765 David Ogden purchased from Burnet and Skinner the Great Boonton Tract of acres. When the Township of Boonton was created in 1867 in “An Act to Divide the Township of Pequannoc in the County of Morris” most of Penn’s Lot No. 48 and parts of the Bollen and Great Boonton Tracts fell within our boundary. Boonton Township’s official birthday is April 11, 1867.
