Montague Township is a township in Sussex County, New Jersey, United States, in the New York City Metropolitan Area. As of the 2010 United States Census, the township's population was 3,847,[8][9][10] reflecting an increase of 435 (+12.7%) from the 3,412 counted in the 2000 Census, which had in turn increased by 580 (+20.5%) from the 2,832 counted in the 1990 Census.[18] High Point, within Montague Township, is the highest elevation within New Jersey at an altitude of 1,803 feet (550 m) above sea level. Montague is also the northernmost municipality in the state of New Jersey.

Most of the area of Montague Township is public lands, primarily High Point State Park, Stokes State Forest, and Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area. Montague is known for its scenery and wildlife, and summer sports in the area include hiking, biking, camping (both public and private campgrounds are available), and fishing.

The derivation of the township's name is uncertain, though suggestions include that it was named after the George Montagu, 4th Duke of Manchester, as suggested by King George II, who approved the royal patent on March 26, 1759;[19] for Lady Mary Wortley Montagu, an author who was popular at the time; or for solicitor John Montague.[20] Montague was incorporated on February 21, 1798, by an act of the New Jersey Legislature as one of New Jersey's initial group of 104 townships.[21]

Before Montague Township was granted its own post office in the 1980s, residents had all of their mail delivered through the 12771 ZIP code for Port Jervis, New York, leading to situations where residents had New Jersey driver's licenses with a New York State mailing address.[22]

Geography[edit]

According to the United States Census Bureau, the township had a total area of 45.380 square miles (117.533 km2), including 43.997 square miles (113.951 km2) of land and 1.383 square miles (3.582 km2) of water (3.05%).[1][2]

Unincorporated communities, localities and place names located partially or completely within the township include Brick House, Duttonville, Four Corners, High Point, High Point Park, Lake Marcia, Mashipacong Island, Mashipacong Pond, Millville and Minisink Island.[23]

The Tri-States Monument, also known as the Tri-State Rock, marks only the northwest end of the New Jersey and New York land boundary but not the north end of the New Jersey and Pennsylvania boundary as it purports to do.[24] The true north end of the New Jersey and New York boundary, as well as the true north end of the New Jersey and Pennsylvania boundary and thus the true tri-state point is located 47.25 feet (14.40 m) to the west, in the middle of the Delaware River in diving distance of the eastbound Interstate 84 overpass. The marker is a small granite block with inscribed lines marking the supposed boundaries of the three states and a bronze National Geodetic Survey marker at the purported but mistaken triple point. The current Tri-State Monument was erected in 1884 as a replacement for the original monument erected in 1774, which was important in resolving the New York - New Jersey Line War.[25]

This climatic region is typified by large seasonal temperature differences, with warm to hot (and often humid) summers and cold (sometimes severely cold) winters. According to the Köppen Climate Classification system, Montague Township has a humid continental climate, abbreviated "Dfb" on climate maps.[26]

Starting in September 2014, Montague Township's high school students began attending High Point Regional High School, in a shift from Port Jervis that will take four years to complete.[78] High Point also serves students from Branchville Borough, Frankford Township, Lafayette Township, Sussex Borough and Wantage Township (where the school is located).[79][80] As of the 2014-15 school year, High Point High School had an enrollment of 1,002 students and 94.3 classroom teachers (on an FTE basis), for a student–teacher ratio of 10.6:1.[81]

One U.S., state, and county route each traverses the township. U.S. Route 206 passes through in the western part and crosses the Delaware River at the Milford-Montague Toll Bridge. Route 23 passes through the eastern part and serves as the entrance road to High Point State Park and ends at the New York border just south of I-84. County Route 521 passes through the northwest and ends at the New York state boundary.

The closest limited access road is Interstate 84 (which used to be part of the New York State Thruway until October 2010) and is immediately over the state line in Deer Park, New York.

In the northernmost section of the township along Route 23, there are several gasoline stations, most likely because gas is significantly less expensive in New Jersey than in Matamoras, Pennsylvania or Port Jervis, New York.

The township does not have a traffic light.[citation needed]
