Encyclopedia Article for Montclair

township (town), Essex county, New Jersey, U.S., just northwest of Newark, on the east slope of Watchung Mountain, whose heights command a fine view of New York City and its harbour. Settled by Puritans from Connecticut in 1666 as part of Newark township and set up as the communities of Cranetown and Speertown (both later renamed West Bloomfield), the site was detached in 1812 as part of Bloomfield. It was separately incorporated as the township of Montclair (French: "Clear Mountain") in 1868, when Bloomfield refused to join in building a rail line to New York City.
