Netcong isMap of netcong a Borough in Morris County, New Jersey. It lies on the shores of Lake Musconetcongmusconetcong river and was incorporated as a borough in 1849. Netcong received its name from the Musconetcong River, which was named by the Lenape Native Americans. Netcong means "grass creek," "swamp stream," or "Rapid stream." The river, and Morris and Sussex Turnpike, which passed through the region after 1801, made this site favorable for development. Netcong derived its business from the Delaware, Lackawanna and Western Railroad, which had its last stop in Netcong. The big railroad roundhouse supplied many jobs for the town residents. The town has been named as a site for the NJ State Railroad and Transportation Museum because of its rich railroad history.    

In 1903, a major fire destroyed about half of Netcong's business district, causing the town to reconstruct about half a dozen buildings. At this point, municipal water was installed along with electricity. As years went on, Netcong grew and prospered. In the summer, many people from large cities in New Jersey come to this area for vacations.
