Recorded history of the Township dates to 1695 when the area was originally settled. The Township of Pequannock was incorporated in 1740, making it older than our nation itself. Community growth was greatest during the 1950's during which time the population more than doubled. During the early 1990's a Planned Residential Development known as "The Glens" was constructed adding 583 town houses, coach homes and condominium apartments to the housing stock of the Township. Within the past ten years, Cedar Crest, a 1,500 unit Continuing Care Retirement Community has also contributed to our recent population. The residents of this facility have become an active and integral part of Pequannock Township.
