History of Landing 078501600’s – – The Nariticong clan of the Delaware Indian Nation live on the east shore of Lake Hopatcong, with a large village on Halsey Island, which was at that time connected to the mainland. Dutch trappers start to have contact with the Nariticongs and with other Lenape Indians. In 1633 the Dutch established trading outposts in what became northern New Jersey.
1664 – -New Jersey becomes an English colony. Groups of Puritans settle Newark in 1666 and move inland.
1700’s — In the early 1700’s, Native Americans began to sell off their land and leave the area. In 1708 they sold a large piece of land that included Roxbury Township. The deed for this transaction was written on an 18″ x 28″ piece of parchment and is still quite legible. It is available for viewing at the New Jersey Historical Society Museum in Newark. Around this date the first group of white settlers established homes in the area that became known as Landing. They belonged to a devout Christian group known as Rogerenes (or Rogerines), named after their founder, John Rogers of Connecticut (1648-1721). Some date their arrival in the Roxbury area as early as 1702, others as late as 1736. Their theology was similar to the Seventh Day Baptists and their practices much like the Quakers. The center of the settlement of about 20 families was Mountain Pond, it’s name changed around 1912 to Lake Rogerene (or Lake Rogerine), long after the group had left. Their modest farms extended to the southern end of Lake Hopatcong, with a small cemetery in the Shore Hills section of Landing. By 1800 most had left the area, some joining another Rogerene group in South Jersey, others heading for Ohio or Virginia, while some others stayed in the area, blending in with the general population.
1740 — On December 24, 1740 Roxbury was incorporated as the fourth township in Morris County. Within its boundaries at that time were the areas that later would separate and become Chester Borough, Chester Township, Mt. Arlington, Mt. Olive Township, Netcong Borough and Washington Township, in addition to parts of Hopatcong Borough and Stanhope. As a result of several of these communities pulling away and becoming independent over the years , Roxbury Township is now comprised of Succasunna (formerly Suckasunny, name changed 1888), Ledgewood (formerly Drakesville, name changed 1891), Kenvil (formerly McCainesville), Port Morris, Landing and Lower Berkshire Valley. Roxbury Township is just under 22 square miles in size.
1750’s — Lake Hopatcong was called Great Pond. Around 1750 an Iron Forge is built by New York City businessman Garret Rapalje near the southern end of the Lake at the point where it flows into the Musconetcong River. Called the Brookland Forge, it was located on what is now the Hopatcong State Park and it operated for at least 30 years. A dam built for the forge raised the Lake level by 6 feet, submerging areas of shoreline and cutting off Halsey Island and Raccoon Island from the mainland. The Lake became known as Brookland Pond.
1758 – – The “Treaty of Easton” completes the sale of Lenape Delaware Indian land to European settlers.
1776 thru 1783 — Roxbury Township and the surrounding area become an important hub for producing Iron Ore and cannonballs to supply General George Washington and the Continental Army.
THE CANAL & RAILROAD COME TO TOWN
1804 — The Essex – Morris – Sussex Turnpike is completed, running through Roxbury Township, a reliable Wagon Toll Road that sped up the movement of people and goods from the cities of the northeast to the wilds of northwest New Jersey. Specifically, the road went from Elizabeth, through Chatham, passed through Madison in almost a straight line, skirted Washington’s headquarters in Morristown; ran along Sussex Avenue in Morristown, and continued through Succasunny Plains, Drakesville (Ledgewood, the same route as today’s Rt 46) and Stanhope to Newtown.
1822 – -While fishing at Lake Hopatcong, George P. Macculloch (whose house in Morristown still stands) dreamed up the idea of what was to become the Morris Canal. The canal was chartered in 1824 and would be an inexpensive way of moving large quantities of coal, timber, iron ore and other goods across New Jersey. It was designed by Professor James Renwick of Columbia College, the first American canal to climb hills. The Morris Canal would run for 103 miles joining the Delaware River at Phillipsburg with the Hudson River, a mule-drawn barge trip that took about 5 days.
1827 — The canal company, having acquired the property, builds a new dam on the Lake to use the large body of water as a canal reservoir. A lock is built that raised boats to the level of the Lake. A bypass valve controlled the water flowing into a feeder canal that connected the Lake to the main canal. Lake Hopatcong was the Morris Canal’s largest reservoir. The Lake was entered through a feeder of the Morris Canal. It then went to the lock at Brooklyn (a little settlement which gave the Lake the name of Brooklyn Pond.) Hopatcong State Park contains Morris Canal remains. In this park, to the left of the beach, is a huge iron waterwheel on display, from Plane No. 3, which operated chains, later wire cables, pulling up the boats. At the gate control house, the visitor can see the locks under water at the edge of the Lake. Also here are the gatekeeper’s and paymaster’s house (built about 1830, still standing). West of the pumping station and the turbine, the broad open space was the basin of the old canal, which from here went to Lake Musconetcong. There were 23 separate inclined planes along the Morris Canal. Set in giant cradles, boats were hauled up rail tracks by chains to water levels as high as 100 feet. As different sections of the canal were completed, they were opened up for local use. On November 4, 1831, the first complete trip from Newark to Phillipsburg was completed. The canal was 90 miles long; and, the trip from Newark to Phillipsburg took about five days. The first full boating season was 1832. When it was completed to Newark in 1831, the actual cost was $2,104,413. In 1836 the eleven mile extension to Jersey City was added.
