Ridgewood

OVERVIEW

RIDGEWOOD

Established in 1894. With unique charm, architecturally beautiful homes and buildings and one of the state’s top school system, Ridgewood is quite unlike any other Bergen County town. Once described as the quintessential American town by USA Today, the village is home to a thriving arts scene, a number of club sports, a bustling downtown with boutiques and endless restaurants and plenty of parkland. History lovers should make the trip  to Schoolhouse Museum of Ridgewood Historical Society, which was built in 1872 and was a school until 1905. Then on Route 17 there is the Zabriskie-Schedler House, a 200-year-old Bergen County Dutch frame house, one of the last of its kind still standing. Other famous landmarks include the Van Neste Square, Graydon Park, Beech Street School, Old Reformed Church, Train Station and James Rose House.
