Welcome to Knowlton Township


Located among the rolling hills of northwestern New Jersey, along the majestic Delaware River, Knowlton Township is a hidden treasure. Our streams, fields, and forests support a great diversity of wildlife, including trout, deer, bear, coyotes and wild turkeys. While less than an hour and a half from New York by car, we have been fortunate enough to preserve our natural beauty for generations to come. I am proud of the spirit of volunteerism that is exhibited every day by so many of our residents. I am proud of the caring spirit that drives us to help one another in need. And, I am proud of the dedication and sacrifice shown by the people of Knowlton in cherishing and protecting our rural community and our quality of life.


Sincerely yours,
Adele Starrs, Mayor

The Township Committee is looking for residents (who may be either for and against the Columbia Dam Removal) to be part of a committee, headed by Committeeman Farber, to work with the Nature Conservancy to plan the park that will be in place should the dam be removed. Please email Acting Clerk Kristin Shipps at actingclerk@knowlton-nj.com your name and contact information along with any ideas you may have.
