Dumont is a New Jersey town, though often described as a suburb of New York City, snuggled in northeastern Bergen County. Dumont has history–the early Dutch settlers and Camp Merritt of World War I fame have seen to that. Dumont has a main business district, with little business areas and stores sprinkled throughout the rest of the town. The parks are numerous and clean. The schools are among the best in the county. Places of worship welcome all. The Fire Department, Ambulance Corps, the Department of Public Works, and Police Department are concerned and caring and wonderfully dependable. Dumont is a home town to love and live in with pride.
The Dumont Public Schools serve students in kindergarten through twelfth grade. Schools in the district are Grant School (K-5) , Honiss School (K-8), Lincoln School (K-5), Selzer School (K-8). Dumont High School serves all high school students within the borough.

What attracts many residents to Dumont are its medium density residential neighborhoods and pedestrian-friendly downtown. All of this charm is located less than one hour by car from mid-town Manhattan.

Houses with historical backgrounds remain as landmarks from colonial days and still can be found in Dumont, such as the Albert Zabriskie house built around 1750.   It is part of the Dutch Colonial Stone House at Number 2 Colonial Court and is the oldest structure still standing in Dumont and registered by the American Historical Society.

 

The borough of Dumont was founded on July 20, 1894.   Present-day Dumont was originally part of larger Schraalenburgh, a Dutch province that included the present-day boroughs of Bergenfield, Dumont, Haworth, and parts of Closter.   Dumont has grown and developed into a thriving community, currently home to 17,500 residents and approximately 5,000 households.

 

The Old North Church, located on the southwest corner of Washington and Madison Avenues, is perhaps Dumont’s finest link to its past.   The Old North Church remains the second oldest church in the area (second only to the Church on the Green), with its first bricks laid in 1723 on land donated by Colonel Isaac Kipp.

 

Today, the Old North Reformed Church remains Dumont’s best source of history, retaining not only detailed written documents dating back to the eighteenth century, but also a wealth of physical artifacts displayed prominently throughout the church.   The church also has an historical committee dedicated to preserving these records and artifacts.
