New Jersey

In 1685 this land was granted by New Jersey to George Lockhart and confirmed in 1687 by New York when that Province governed this area. It remained under New York jurisdiction until 1769 when the boundary dispute between the two colonies was resolved. In the 1700's farmers settled this land then known as "Rockland". Declared "Rockleigh Historic District" on July 2, 1976 because it retained "rural 18th and 19th century cultural characteristics".
