All About Boonton

Covering a geographic area of 2.45 square miles, the Town of Boonton is located in the northeastern Morris County, about 22 miles west of the George Washington Bridge and seven miles north of Morristown on Rte. 287. It’s an established community with an abundance of parks, older homes and convenient access to all parts of the tristate metropolitan area.

Public transportation to New York City is available via express and local commuter rail (NJ Transit), and by bus service (Lakeland Bus). While many residents commute to work in Newark and New York City, many others work in the surrounding areas of northern and central New Jersey.

Boonton residents are primarily professionals, craftsmen, and independent business people. The town’s business community includes numerous major corporations, such as Unigene (pharmaceuticals), Dauphin (commercial furniture manufacturers), Carbone-Lorraine (industrial manufacturers), Packard (specialization in antique automotive equipment), Uni-Mast (steel manufacturers), and the research and development center for Ashland Chemical Corporation. We have three midsized shopping centers, and various specialty shops located in and around the Main Street Business District. Residential housing available in the town includes one and two family homes, condos, townhouses and restored homes representing the Colonial, Victorian and Contemporary Eras.

Boonton is a vibrant community which is grounded in its historical past. A rich cultural background has been passed down through the years from immigrant who came to Boonton to work in its iron industry. Boonton has been home to abolitionists, a stop on the Underground Railroad, and home of the world famous Boontonware. Trolley cars, vaudeville theaters and hotels thrived on Main Street at the turn of the century. Now the home of high tech companies, a wide range of restaurants and antique stores, the town has grown and diversified both in its industry and in its ethnic population.

Although Boonton is a town built on industry, it is not without natural beauty. Grace Lord Park, with it fountain, falls, and landmark gazebo, is home to the town’s concerts during the summer season. The Rockaway River meanders through the park, and the town offers walking trails and a variety of flora and fauna for the nature enthusiast. Boonton is home to one of Morris County’s best kept secrets – the Boonton Falls. Rivaled only by the Great Falls of Paterson, the power of the falls helped establish the town as an iron town in the 1800s. Now, it offers hiking trails and a chance to see the town as it looked a century ago.

Boonton is also home to the historic New Jersey Fireman’s Home. One of only a handful in the entire country, this hospital cares for both full-time and volunteer firemen that have no other facilities to turn to during retirement or convalescence.

Cedar Lake

Cedar Lake was originally a small, natural, spring-fed body of water called Cranberry Lake and, later, Silver Lake. In its early days, the lake was known for its abundant silver moss, used to pack ice which was harvested, sold and shipped to nearby metropolitan areas.
