Delmont, NJ sits in Maurice River Township. There is a local legend about a Dutch ship traveling up a river the Lenni Lenape People called the Wahatquenak. The Native Americans attacked the ship called the “Prince Maurice”, sinking it. Since then, in 1657, the area became known as the Maurice River Valley. Maurice River Township was formed in 1748 as one of the original 104 townships in New Jersey.
It wasn’t until 1770, that Delmont was settled, but back then it was known by the name Ewing’s Neck. The Ewing’s lived there, naturally. The post office made the town official in 1851 and the railroad stop followed in 1863.
It wasn’t until 1891 that the name was changed to Delmont. It may have been due to the local popularity of the Delmont United Methodist Church, built in 1872. it also may have been named for the small Delmont School circa 1887.
Today the population of Delmont is about two thousand residents. The town also holds another two thousand additional residents, in the New Jersey Department of Corrections Southern State Correctional Facility. This all-male facility houses the inmates in open dormitories. The compound sits near the Bayside State Prison.
There is a lot to see in Delmont and Maurice Township. There are many beautiful, natural spaces.
