Towaco is a section of Montville Township in Morris County, NJ. The name comes from the Indian word "Taiwaughaugh" which means "land of the foothills." During the 1800s, the Morris Canal traveled through the community and a small village formed. Eventually, the canal was replaced by the railroad, which offered faster transportation. Today, the Towaco Train Station is located in the center of town. A few shops and businesses are located across the street. U.S. Route 202 travels through the community and parallels the railroad. Towaco (07082) has its own post office and fire department. Although there are historic homes and old farm houses from the 1700s and 1800s sprinkled across the community, most of the homes and neighborhoods were constructed beginning in the 1950s. Ranch, cape, bi-level, split level, and colonial homes are all common. Towaco is located on the northern end of Montville Township. Bus and train service to NYC are available.
