The borough of Dumont was founded on July 20, 1894. Present-day Dumont was originally part of larger Shraalenburgh, a Dutch province that included the present-day boroughs of Bergenfield, Dumont, Haworth, and parts of Closter. The original Dutch settlers had traveled into present-day Bergen County from Fort Amsterdam, which was located in lower Manhattan Island. The Dutch parent colony of New Netherland lasted from the early 17th century to 1664, with the surrender of the colony to Britain. With Governor Pieter Stuyvesant's surrender of New Netherland in 1664, Britain gained control of the Dutch claims in New York and New Jersey. The colony was briefly recaptured by the Netherlands in 1673 in one of the Anglo-Dutch wars, but was restored to British control soon after in 1674. When Dumont became a separate borough in 1894, it initially kept the name of Schraalenburgh (the other towns changed their names). The borough originally contained 3 square miles, however, strips of land were ceded to the neighboring townships of Palisades Twp. (Pd New Milford) and Harrington Twp. (Pd Haworth). In 1898, Schraalenburgh changed its name to Dumont, named after Dumont Clarke, the first mayor of the borough. Dumont's main historical landmarks include Camp Merritt and The Old North Reformed Church (see below) at the intersection of Washington and Madison Avenues. Celebrating over one hundred years as a borough, Dumont has grown and developed into a thriving community, currently home to 17,500 residents* and approximately 5,000 housholds
