Along with Caldwell and other neighboring communities West Essex was once part of the Horseneck Tract in the early 1700s. Following the Revolutionary War, Caldwell Township was formed. In 1892, Caldwell Center became Caldwell Borough, while the outskirts remained as Caldwell Township, out of which West Caldwell was later formed.
