Ridgefield Park is a collection of photographs and memorabilia that spans more than three hundred years. Although the community was originally inhabited by the Lenni Lenape Indians, Hendrick Brinkerhoff became Ridgefield Park's first settler in 1685. Surrounded by the Hackensack River and the Overpeck Creek, and in close proximity to New York City, Ridgefield Park has grown into a bustling suburb that maintains its small-town appeal. The village's strong history of community involvement, coupled with a unique form of nonpartisan government, make Ridgefield Park the distinctive and well-loved town it is today.
