This Day in History: 1909-03-08
At a special meeting attended by three Hohokus Township Committeemen, Albert Winter, C. D. Vanderbeek and Jacob Straut and Township Treasurer Harry Hagerman as well as members of the Borough of Ramsey Committee and Allendale residents a number of recommendations were made to the Erie Railroad to improve service to Mahwah and the other towns. The Mahwah contingent requested that the eastbound train (the 8:43 from Ramsey) stop at Mahwah. They wanted a train to arrive from New York at about 6:30 PM and that the Depots in all three towns be opened until 9:00 PM. A delegation of Albert Winter, Otto Saalfield of Ramsey and Mr. Lee of Allendale will personally call on the Erie Passenger Alert.
