Dumont is a borough in Bergen County, New Jersey, United States. As of the 2010 United States Census, 17,479 people lived there.[9][10][11] This is 24 less (-0.1%) than the 17,503 people in the 2000 Census. In the 1990 Census, 17,187 people lived there.[20]

The borough was formed on July 20, 1891, as the Borough of Schraalenburgh. It was created from parts of Harrington Township and Palisades Township. This was done because of the results of a referendum held the day before.[21] At this time, many boroughs were created in the county. 26 boroughs were formed in the county in 1894 alone.[22] On March 7, 1898, portions of the borough were annexed to Palisades Township.[23] On June 13, 1898, the borough's name was changed to Dumont . This was in honor of Dumont Clarke, the borough's first mayor.[21][24][25][26]
