Montvale is a borough in Bergen County, New Jersey, United States. As of the 2010 United States Census, the borough's population was 7,844,[1][2][3] reflecting an increase of 810 (+11.5%) from the 7,034 counted in the 2000 Census, which had in turn increased by 88 (+1.3%) from the 6,946 counted in the 1990 Census.

Montvale was incorporated as a borough on August 31, 1894, from portions of Orvil Township and Washington Township. The borough was formed during the "Boroughitis" phenomenon then sweeping through Bergen County, in which 26 boroughs were formed in the county in 1894 alone. On February 15, 1896, Montvale acquired part of Orvil Township. In 1906, Montvale added further land from Orvil and Washington townships, and in 1912, Montvale added territory from Upper Saddle River.[4] On May 20, 1959, portions of Montvale were passed to River Vale, and on December 9 and 14, 1965, territories were exchanged between Montvale and Upper Saddle River. The borough's name is derived from its topography.
