It has been said that Ringwood is more a company than a
town, and more a tradition than a company. On the cut-off road a few old houses remain.
The story of Ringwood stretches back for centuries; the reputation of its iron mines, its
forges, and the men who governed this 15,000-acre domain is unparalleled in a State that
has known many forges and many large landowners. For miles around the influence of the old
company are still felt, even though the mines have been closed for decades. Located near
the New York border, the borough of Ringwood developed first as an iron-mining town and
then as a summer resort. The town of Ringwood sits amongst the Ramapo Mountains of
northwest New Jersey. Ringwood State Park is one of the many attractions in Ringwood. It
includes the Ringwood Manor House, which is a mansion that is now a historical national
landmark. The castle-like mansion may be toured. Also there is the Skylands Manor section
of the park which is New Jerseys first official botanic garden. Skylands is a wonder
to see. The grounds are beautiful. There is almost always something blooming here amid the
variety of formal and less formal layouts, which include a crab apple vista, a magnolia
garden, a bog garden, and a winter garden.
