The first borough to be incorporated in Bergen County, in 1881, Rutherford took its name, using a variant spelling, from that of John Rutherford, a one-time state legislator and United States senator whose family owned much of the land in the area, according to Rod Leith, the borough's historian.
Rutherford's property was divided into much of the borough's street grid. It is not uncommon to find homes that are more than 100 years old throughout the borough.
