Our 1/6000 scale site contour model of Mahwah illustrates three periods of Mahwah’s history using fiber optic lights. The 1700 to 1800 period shows historical Revolutionary War routes, old grist mills, and Indian sites. The 1800 to 1900 period shows the development of roads and railroads as well as businesses, schools, churches, and residential developments. The 1900 to Present period highlights additional transportation systems, including NJ Rapid Transit (Trolley), as well as the burgeoning business and industry of Mahwah.
