Welcome To Rumson NJ

The Borough of Rumson is located 2 miles west of Sea Bright in Monmouth County, New Jersey and approximately 24 miles southwest of New York, New York.  This small friendly community is comprised of approximately 7,322 residents.


Due to popular vote during a referendum held on June 18, 1907, the New Jersey Legislature formed Rumson from parts of Shrewsbury Township on March 15, 1907.  According to local legend, this township got its name from a land deal.  Supposedly, settlers bartered with local Indians for the land that is now Rumson Township and ended up buying it for some rum.  This is most likely untrue however, because as far back as 1663, Native Americans referred to this area as Navarumsunk.


Throughout its history, Rumson has been an affluent suburb and is still one of the better neighborhoods in New Jersey.  Residents here enjoy quiet, peaceful lifestyles with access to any amenities one might desire.  There are great area schools and hospitals as well as local area parks and recreation centers providing venues for a variety of sports and recreational activities for all ages.  Residents here enjoy convenient access to very nice beaches just across the Sea Bright Bridge.  Rumson provides convenient access to new York City as well as a commuter ferry providing quick and easy access to Manhattan.
