Warren County, NJ

The original inhabitants of the Lower Musconetcong Valley were the Leni Lenape, who arrived here about 10 thousand years ago.

Their campsites & farms dotted the valley and they annually burned off the meadow to maintain grasslands for hunting.

The first white occupation dates to about 1720 & by the mid 1700's the Lenape had left Lower Pohatcong due to being adversely affected by their contact with European settlement.
