The Horseneck Tavern
Celebrating Essex County
In 1702, a group of Newark colonists purchased 14,000 acres of land from the Lenape Tribe. This tract was known as “The Horse Neck,” due to its unique shape, and comprises most of Northern Essex County today. Decades later, in the 1740’s, title disputes led by the original English Proprietors spurred “The Horse Neck Riots” –one of the earliest Colonial American challenges to British authority.
In 1798, the bulk of the Horse Neck Tract separated from Newark to become the “Township of Caldwell” consisting of what is today Verona, Cedar Grove, Fairfield and the Caldwells. The construction of the “Big Road,” Bloomfield Avenue, from Newark through Bloomfield and Montclair, brought more commerce, families and prosperity to Caldwell in the early 1800’s.
