The towns in NW Bergen County were settled in the 18th century by immigrants from countries in Europe and Africa. Through the centuries the number of countries grew. Today, we have immigrants from all over the world. Come see how they impacted the towns where they settled and how they enrich us today.
The railroad came to NW Bergen in the mid-19th century, bringing with it, jobs, prosperity and immigrants. Come see how trains affected our towns, and the immigrants that came on them, came to work on them, and decided to stay. Businesses developed around the railroad stations, defining what would become the towns we know today.
