The Borough of Bogota was formed on November 14, 1894, from portions of Ridgefield Township, based on the results of a referendum held that day. It was a result of the "Boroughitis" phenomenon then sweeping through Bergen County, in which 26 boroughs were formed in the county in 1894 alone.

Prior to the founding of the Borough of Bogota, the area was inhabited by members of the Lenape Tribe until the early 1600s when Dutch settlers arrived. The Dutch were replaced by the British in 1664, Following the Civil War, Bogota evolved from a farming area to a suburban and industrial one.

The Borough celebrated its 125th Anniversary in 2019 with the issuance of a fourth anniversary journal. These volumes can be consulted for more information about the Borough’s past.
