History:

The Township of Pequannock with its northern portion, Pompton Plains, is one of the oldest European settlements in northwestern New Jersey. It was incorporated in 1740, making it at the time the largest township in Morris County. Evident reports tool making and hunting activity by Paleo-Indian hunters as early as 3000 B.C.E. Later it was occupied by Lenni Lenape Indians who camped, hunted, fished, settled and tilled the fertile lands along the river plains formed by the confluence of the Ramapo, Pompton and Pequannock Rivers. The latter name is derived from the Lenape name, "Paquettahhnuake," meaning, "cleared land ready or being readied for cultivation." Pompton, possibly means, from one source, a "place where they catch soft fish." After being purchased by Arent Schuyler and associates from the Lenape and the East Jersey Propietors between 1695-1696, Dutch and English farmers began to farm its flat plain by 1710.
