Historyedit

The initial patent for the land that would become Bloomfield Township was granted to the English Puritan colonists of Newark, and the area assigned to Essex County in 1675, and Newark Township in 1693 From the 1690s to about the 1720s, much of the northern and eastern land was sold to descendants of New Netherland colonists who had settled Acquackanonk, and the remainder mostly to English families Speertown now Upper Montclair, Stone House Plains now Brookdale, and Second River now Belleville were essentially Dutch, while Cranetown, Watsessing, and the Morris Neighborhood now North Center were predominantly English Starting in the mid-18th century, the English and Dutch neighborhoods gradually integrated, with Thomas Cadmus being among the first Dutchmen to settle in an English neighborhood

Numerous residents served in the Revolutionary War20 No significant engagements occurred in Bloomfield, although the locale was on the Continental Army's retreat route after the Battle of Long Island; British and American troops conducted foraging operations; and General George Washington is believed to have visited at least two residences21 The Green was set aside to commemorate the use of that space for drilling of militia22

Presbyterian Church, for which the township was named

The Presbyterian Society of Bloomfield now the Bloomfield Presbyterian Church on the Green was formed in 1794 in honor of then-brigadier Joseph Bloomfield, commander of New Jersey troops in the Whiskey Rebellion23 About the same time, the Dutch Reformed Church of Stone House Plains now Brookdale Reformed Church was established24 The two churches became integral institutions of southern and northern Bloomfield, respectively

Bloomfield was incorporated as a township from portions of Newark Township by an act of the New Jersey Legislature on March 23, 181225 At the time, the Presbyterian parish's namesake was governor of New Jersey and had recently been appointed brigadier general for service in the looming War of 1812262728

At the time it was incorporated, the township covered 2052 square miles 531 km2 almost four times its current area of 53 square miles 14 km2 and included several municipalities which were formed from portions of Bloomfield during the course of the nineteenth century, including Belleville created on April 8, 1839, Montclair April 15, 1868, Woodside Township March 24, 1869 and Glen Ridge February 13, 18952529 The Stone House Plains neighborhood was renamed as Brookdale in 187330

Bloomfield Station in 1908

In the township's first century, Brookdale farms thrived while southern Bloomfield industrialized, and the township's infrastructure, civil framework and social institutions developed Several miles of the Morris Canal passed through Bloomfield31 The Oakes woollen mill thrived as a major supplier to the Union army32

Bloomfield was incorporated as a town on February 26, 190025 In 1981, the town was one of seven Essex County municipalities to pass a referendum to become a township, joining four municipalities that had already made the change, of what would ultimately be more than a dozen Essex County municipalities to reclassify themselves as townships in order to take advantage of federal revenue sharing policies that allocated townships a greater share of government aid to municipalities on a per capita basis3334353637

In the 20th century, GE, Westinghouse and Schering built major facilities, and among others, the Charms Candy Company was started and grew38 After World War I, Brookdale's farms were developed into residential neighborhoods and supporting services Substantial population growth continued into the 1950s During World War II, while many Bloomfield men served in the armed forces, Bloomfield's farms and factories, largely staffed by women, supported the war effort In the decades after the war, the township's industrial base steadily shut down with stricter environmental regulations, rising labor costs, and growing competition These influences, as well as construction of the Garden State Parkway, further drove urban decay and related population turnover and stagnation through the latter part of the 20th century

In the early 21st century, redevelopment of blighted and underutilized properties has further shifted Bloomfield towards being a primarily residential municipality39
