Waldwick, like other towns in northern New Jersey, was created because of the railroad. The area around the borough, however, has a much longer history, dating back to the era of the Lenni Lenape Indians. During the Revolutionary War, as George Washington was staying at the Hermitage, his troops camped in Waldwick. In Waldwick, the photographs and stories of many Waldwick residents and a newly created historical map reveal the rich heritage of this close-knit community.
