Roseland, NJ Fun Fact

Roseland was part of the Horseneck Tract, which was an area that consisted of what are now the municipalities of Caldwell, West Caldwell, North Caldwell, Fairfield, Verona, Cedar Grove, Essex Fells, Roseland, and portions of Livingston and West Orange.[94] In 1702, settlers purchased the 14,000 acres (57 km2) Horseneck Tract — so-called because of its irregular shape that suggested a horse’s neck and head — from the Lenni Lenape Native Americans for goods equal to $325. This purchase encompassed much of western Essex County, from the First Mountain to the Passaic River.

Originally named Centerville, the name of the town was changed to Roseland to avoid confusion with the several other Centervilles spread across the state.

One of the most notable places of interest in the town was the Becker Farm Railroad, otherwise known as the Centerville & Southwestern Railroad. Located on the Becker Farm (on what is now a large business complex, which comprises more than half of the total area within the town), a miniature railroad operated from 1938 until 1972. Some vestiges of the railroad still exist.
