Dumont, NJ

Dumont NJ



Established in 1984. Originally called the “Borough of Schraalenburgh” and later was renamed after the town’s first mayor to Dumont.  Citizens first opened their businesses and settled in homes near the railroad that bisects the city, even the town’s High School is just off the railroad where students used to arrive from neighboring towns by rail.  Generations later, decedents of the first generations still remain in town as it remains a tight-knit community that always welcomes newcomers to their large “family”.  Local residents stick to tradition, such as Arbor Day, when they plant a tree and have fun contests for children, such as finding the largest tree in town and giving out certificates for heritage trees. Dumont Day brings together all residents from the youngest to the oldest to celebrate the town as one big family in beautiful Memorial Park.  There will never be an issue with food, with over 20 different resturants from Cuban to Barbeque and so many other choices there is something for everyone.
