Wanaque, NJ Community Information

History:

Wanaque was incorporated as an independent Borough on February 23, 1918, when Pompton Township was split up into three Boroughs, along with Bloomingdale and Ringwood. Wanaque is the name given to our valley by the Indians. These early inhabitants had no written language, but pronounced the name Wa na'key or perhaps Wyanockie. This word, in the language of the Lenni Lenape, may come from an Algonquin root meaning "rest and repose." A more popular interpretation is "place of sassafras." Historians have found old deeds and documents which reveal the word Wanaque had many spellings - Wynokie, Wynocky, Wynoky, and Wynockie.
