      borough (town), Bergen county, northeastern New Jersey, U.S., immediately north of Hackensack on the east bank of the Hackensack River. Early Dutch settlers established a plantation-type farm called Vriesendael, which was pillaged by Delaware Indians in 1643. In 1675 David Demarest (or des Marest), a French Huguenot, and his sons received a land grant, which included the former farm area. Two years later they established the first permanent settlement. Their mill, known as Demarest Landing, became a shipping point for iron ore. The home of Demarest's son Samuel is preserved in replica near the Steuben House Museum; the house of another son, David, stands on River Road. The New Bridge Inn (1739) is still in operation.

      Originally included in Palisades township (organized in the 1800s), the borough was established in 1922 when three small settlements—Peetzburg, New Milford Manor, and New Bridge—amalgamated and incorporated as New Milford. Though primarily a residential suburb of the New York City region, there is a local facility for processing and packing spices. Pop. (1990) 15,990; (2000) 16,400.
