The Birth of Ridgewood: 1865-1876
FEBRUARY 24, 7:30 PM
Hosted by historians Peggy Norris and Joe Suplicki.
Hear the tale of Ridgewood’s growth from farmland to suburbs and from post office to township. Before we were a village, Ridgewood was a quiet area of farms. With the coming of the railroad, it began its transformation into a town—and it needed a name.
Learn about this interesting time in Ridgewood’s history and the controversy that swirled around naming it.
