Palisades Park's original settlers were the Ashkineshacky Indians, a tribe of the Lenni-Lenape Nation. The borough was incorporated on March 22, 1899, and a month later its first mayor, John S. Edsall, was sworn into office. Advancements in transportation and its small-town character enticed many New York City families to relocate to the beautiful undeveloped land, sparking massive growth. Today Palisades Park remains a progressive community. Its small-town character has been enjoyed by generations of residents and will continue for generations ahead. Palisades Park chronicles the borough's development from the 19th through the 20th century, highlighting the people and public servants who have made Palisades Park the prosperous suburb it is today.
