Netcong has been a recognized hub for business since the year it was founded at the end of the 19th century. Its proximity to the Old Morris and Sussex Turnpikes, the famous Morris Canal and stagecoach stops made it a thoroughfare for commerce between New York City and the Delaware River from 1831 through the 1920s. In the 21st century Netcong’s location remains an intelligent choice for forward thinking entrepreneurs and companies.

Netcong sits directly off I-80, one of the most important coast-to-coast interstates in the US. Going east, it’s the main artery to New York City. Westbound, it’s the gateway to the Pocono Mountains. And it traverses some of the most demographically mixed communities on the eastern seaboard, with multi-ethnic, blue- collar and affluent households encircling the intersection of Morris and Sussex counties. At their meeting point, Netcong offers a cohesive small-business and residential environment, a quaint and inviting downtown, and ample assets and opportunities for small businesses to start up or relocate, with direct access to the World Trade Zone.

Tradition, Tradition!

Founded in 1894, Netcong took its name from the “Musconetcong” River — meaning “grass creek,” “swamp stream,” “rapid stream” or “clear stream place” in the language of the Delaware River Lenape Native Americans who lived in New Jersey, Pennsylvania and parts of New York State from time immemorial through the 1700s. The Lenape were known for a strong sense of tradition and peaceful ways, which typify Netcong today, along with a canal lock and tow path from the old Morris Canal that are still visible on the shore of the lake.

As a welcoming walking town and the home of many multi-generation households that fan out from scenic Lake Muscanetcong, Netcong offers home-style living at it simplest and best.

Borough-sponsored come-together community events span the entire year, with Netcong Day marking the passage from summer to fall in early September.
