Overview of Newton

The town of Newton is located in northern New Jersey in the heart of Sussex County, roughly 22 miles northwest of Parsippany and 37 miles northwest of Newark. Newton apartments for rent can be excellent ways to join the growing population of more than 7,900 residents. The town encompasses approximately 3.15 square miles of land, and is relatively family-friendly, as 21.2 percent of the population is under 18.

Newton is located in Kittatinny Valley, a basin between the Paulinskill River, Pequest Creek and Wallkill. It overlooks the Big Spring and Paulinskill meadows and sits on the declining slopes of the Great Slate Mountains. There are a number of major roads cutting through this town, including Route 206 and 94, which provide easy access to nearby areas.

Living in Newton, NJ

People living in Newton apartments can enjoy discovering the town's interesting past. In 1751, a German immigrant by the name of Henry Harelocker was the first permanent European settler to the area after the site was plotted by Deputy Surveyor Samuel Green in 1715. Newton was incorporated as a town in 1864 by an Act of the State Legislature.

The establishment of roads and turnpikes played a large part in Newton's rise and growth over the years, particularly in its position as a regional service center. When Sussex County received its first railroad in 1854, rapid commercial and residential growth came along with it. With the nickname of the "Pearl of Kittatinny," this community takes pride in retaining its charms and heritage reflected in its settings today.

Newton Work and Study

The modern factory system came to Newton in 1873 with the construction of the Merriam Shoe Factory, sparking the Age of Enterprise. According to author Kevin Wright, this "prosperous epoch" is still reflected in many of the elegant residences and places of business in Newton today. Census data revealed that nearly 4,000 local residents make up the labor force of the town, and the most common industry from 2005 to 2009 was retail trade, making up 15 percent of local industry. City-Data information indicated that the most common occupations include sales, related workers and supervisors.
