Boonton is a vibrant community, which is grounded in its historical past. A rich cultural background has been passed down the years from immigrants who came to Boonton to work in its iron industry. Boonton has been home to abolitionists, a stop on the Underground Railroad and home to the world famous Boontonware. Trolley cars, vaudeville theatres 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 its population.
Although Boonton is a town built on industry, it is not without natural beauty. Grace Lord Park, with its fountain, falls and landmark gazebo, is home to the town's concerts during the summer season. The Rockaway River meanders through the park and our town offering walking trails and a variety of flora and fauna for the nature enthusiasts. 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 a iron town in 1800. Now, it offers hiking trails and a chance to see the town as it looked a century ago. Boonton offers easy access to NYC via bus or train.
