Pascack Historical Society
Established in 1942, the Pascack Historical Society preserves the history of Park Ridge and the surrounding community through its exhibits and special programming. The organization is headquartered in a former congregational church which also houses thousands of historical items that date from the present to as far back as the time the Lenape Native Americans inhabited the area—5,000 years ago.
Backstory and Context
Items and artifacts include costumes, textiles, Lenape tools, hats, quilts, photographs, and Civil War-era objects. The archives contain newspapers, ledgers, legal documents and other records.
