Fairfield, New Jersey is a township of more than seven thousand people in the northwestern of Essex County.
Dutch settlers purchased Horseneck Tract, including what is now Fairfield, New Jersey, in 1702 from the Leni Lenape. The Dutch named what is now Fairfield “Gansegat.” It later was part of Newark Township. In 1798 the town was formed and originally named Caldwell Township, although over the years it lost some of its area to surrounding towns. Townspeople voted in 1963 to rename the town as Fairfield Township. Essex County Airport, from which John F. Kennedy, Jr. departed on his fatal flight, is located in Fairfield.
