Sussex County was established in 1753 from portions of Morris County. It was named for Jonathan Belcher, Royal Governor of New Jersey. It originally contained all the land north and west of the Musconetcong River, including the area of Warren County. The first settlement by European colonists began in the late 1690's by Dutch settlers from New York along the Delaware River. Sussex County features a mix of farmland, forests and suburban areas and is considered a "bedroom community" as most residents commute to neighboring counties (Bergen, Essex and Morris Counties) or to New York City for work.
