Cresskill was initially inhabited by the Hackensacky and Lenni Lenape Indians. Dutch trappers and traders settled there in 1643. The Dutch settlers displaced the Indians and began farming the area. During the Revolutionary War, the farms in Cresskill were raided by the British.

Following World War II, Cresskill became the new home to many service men and their growing families. Anxious to raise their children in a small suburban town they settled here and became involved in the schools and community.
