The Ramapough Chronicles: A 300-year History of Mahwah, New Jersey and its Surrounds
By Carol Wehran Greene. A fascinating story beginning with the early settlement in the 1700’s of the ancient Ramapough regions, which included present-day Mahwah. It is based, in part, upon the experiences and notable document collection of the historic Ramapough Reformed Church/Ramapough Meeting House organized in 1785 and built in 1798. The Ramapough Chronicles is a 26-year labor of love, bringing the author’s personal lifetime knowledge of Mahwah to an ambitious work of scholarship that puts many wonderful, rare –even obscure– items into the public domain, with a smooth-flowing interpretation based upon years of study.
