Lincoln Park, NJ
borough, which traces its roots to 1690, is now ranked as
the third kindest town in the state of New Jersey, based
on a contest in which town residents logged the number of
kind acts they performed during the contest period.
Located between the Pompton and Passaic rivers, the name
of the town was Beavertown until 1872.
Located in historic Morris County, the Borough of Lincoln
Park dates back to the pre-Revolutionary War, with
settlers first taking up residence as early as 1690.
During the Revolutionary War, a commissary was maintained
here. Lincoln Park was originally a part of Pequannock and
was referred to as Two Bridges and then Beavertown. The
present name was adopted in 1872. In 1922, after a
referendum was submitted to the voters, the separate
Borough of Lincoln Park was established.
