Dumont is a borough in Bergen County, New Jersey, United States. The borough was originally formed on July 20, 1894, as the Borough of Schraalenburgh from portions of Harrington Township and Palisades Township, based on the results of a referendum held the previous day. The borough was formed during the “Boroughitis” phenomenon then sweeping through Bergen County, in which 26 boroughs were formed in the county in 1894 alone. On March 7, 1898, portions of the borough were annexed to Palisades Township. On June 13, 1898, the borough’s name was changed to Dumont in honor of Dumont Clarke, the borough’s first mayor.
Dumont has two major parks in the borough. Memorial Park is located on the east side of Dumont. It is made up of five ball parks, one tennis court, a basketball court, and a pavilion.
