Netcong Borough, NJ Community Information

Change Town

History:

Netcong, formerly South Stanhope was incorporated as a Borough on October 22, 1894. Parts of Mt. Olive and Roxbury Townships were added to South Stanhope to form the Borough, which is about one mile square. Netcong received its name from the Musconetcong River, which the Delaware Indians called grass creek or swamp stream. The proximity of the old Morris and Sussex Turnpike, which passed through the region shortly after 1801, and the coming of the Morris Canal, in 1831, also made the site a favorable one for development. After becoming a Borough, the residents had to elect the first Governing Body. The first Mayor was Abraham J. Drake, elected November 14, 1894.
