Rumson is a Borough in Monmouth County, New Jersey. As of the United States 2000 Census, the borough population was 7,137. Rumson was formed as a borough by an Act of the New Jersey Legislature on March 15, 1907, from portions of Shrewsbury Township. Legend has it that early settlers bought the piece of land known as Rumson from the Natives for rum. As far back as 1663, long before the area was officially named Rumson, Natives called it “Navarumsunk”. Rumson was purchased by English settlers in pieces. The first purchase is dated January 25, 1665, and it included parts of Middletown. The rest of the area was purchased April 7, 1665 and June 5, 1665.

There are many old, historic homes in Rumson, but the oldest is the 700-acre Treadwell House, named after a family that summered there for almost 100 years. It is the second oldest building in Monmouth County, and dates back to 1670. Rumson has always been a very affluent area. In fact, it is still one of the wealthiest towns in New Jersey. The homes are spectacularly large, many with private yachts anchored in the Navesink River, which serves as their backyard. Locals enjoy the beautiful beaches just over the Oceanic Bridge, as well as a quick commuter ferry to downtown Manhattan.
