Viscont White Granite in Wanaque, NJ

Aqua Kitchen and Bath Design Center’s team is being called all over the state of New Jersey to install beautiful granite countertops. This time, we went to Wanaque, NJ to install Viscont White granite countertops. Wanaque is a picturesque borough in Passaic County, New Jersey. Over the years, Wanaque had different spellings: Wynocky, Wynockie, Wynokie and Wynoky.  The name was given by the Indians who pronounced the name Wyanockie or Wa na’key. This word also may come from an Algonquin root meaning “rest and repose”.  More popular interpretation of its meaning is “place of sassafras”.

During the 19thcentury, the main industries in this area were charcoal burning and mining. Two mines were located in the nearest area and a large amount of charcoal was manufactured here. This is how the Wanaque territory began to grow industrially during the 19th century.  Wanaque is surrounded by Pompton Lakes, Bloomingdale, Ringwood in Passaic County, and Oakland in Bergen County.
