History

Bloomingdale was incorporated as an independent Borough on February 23, 1918, when Pompton Township was split up into three Boroughs along with Wanaque and Ringwood.[8] Prior to that, the area was known as Bloomingdale throughout the 19th century and was initially settled as a farming village starting about 1712 with the "Bloomingdale Forge" built shortly thereafter to take advantage of the iron in the hills. The business district along the Paterson-Hamburg Turnpike and the Pequannock River began about the middle of the 19th century.
