North Haledon History

Minsi Native Americans were among the original inhabitants of this area. They used the area mostly for fishing and hunting purposes. However, their lands were later sold and they moved away from the area in 1737. Henry Hudson, an employee of the Dutch East India Company, arrived in this area in 1609, and Dutch settlements soon began to spring up in the region. The community of North Haledon was created from parts of Manchester Township and incorporated on March 20, 1901.
