Califon was a station on the High Bridge Railroad, and although the mills were there for some time, it was quite a while before growth became evident in the mid-nineteenth century. It was first called California, from Jacob Neighbor's enthusiasm in the milling business about the time the California gold-fever broke out. The Borough was formed officially from Lebanon and Tewksbury Townships in 1918.

The Califon Historical Society registered 170 structures with the national Register of Historic Places. A charming Victorian Village. The houses are marked with the names of the builders and their dates of establishment rather than with street numbers.
