Come visit Belvidere and enjoy its rich “Victorian Era” history and architecture.
Nestled in the Highlands area of Northwest New Jersey, the town of Belvidere is located at the junction of the picturesque Delaware and Pequest rivers. The Pequest, smaller of the two, is one of the State's top trout fishing streams. The Delaware, separating Pennsylvania and New Jersey, offers a variety of water sports including boating, canoeing, tubing, and rafting.
As the county seat of Warren, Belvidere hosts a stately Courthouse. This imposing structure anchors a certified historic district containing many beautiful Victorian style homes. Founded in 1777, the town received its name from Robert Morris, signer of the Declaration of Independence and financier of the Revolution. Today, Belvidere is a thriving crossroads, while maintainging its quite picturesque residential charm.
Belvidere houses Warren County's government services, boutique specialty retailers, performing arts, and a wide variety of tourism and recreational activities.
