Explorer John Cabot in 1497 sailed past what we now know as New Jersey. The first known European to visit New Jersey was Henry Hudson, in 1609. In 1664, England took over the colony and New Jersey came under the power of the New York governor in 1702. The colony became a state in 1787.

The northern third of New Jersey is considered a part of the Appalachian Highland region, with ridges running from the southwest to the northeast. The state is surrounded by water except for 50 miles where it borders New York state. There is a blending of farmland and wooded hills and New Jersey’s highest elevation is 1,803 feet in the Kittatinny Mountains which cover the northwest corner of the state from the Delaware Water Gap to the New York border.
