Encyclopedia Article for Totowa

borough (town), Passaic county, northeastern New Jersey, U.S., west of Paterson, on the west bank of the Passaic River. During the American Revolution, American troops were encamped here, and the nearby Theunis Dey Mansion (1740) was General George Washington's headquarters in 1780. Dutch scholars translated Totowa, or Totua, as "where you begin"; other sources indicate it was derived from a Delaware Indian word meaning "between mountains and waters."
