In 1662, two men and their families settled along the banks of Overpeck Creek. At this location, the township of Ridgefield would be established and later become the beloved borough of Ridgefield. Historically, the settlement of Ridgefield began as a modest subdivision within the English Neighborhood that spanned an area of 10 square miles, centrally located between the Hudson River and Hackensack River. This valley, with its unique location and close proximity to New York City, intrigued many people. This caused substantial real estate growth, creating a community that would forever be adored by many. Ridgefield was home to distinguished residents, such as Samuel F.B. Morse, inventor of the Morse code, and Alexander Shaler, Civil War Union army general and Medal of Honor recipient. The charming landscape and stunning views would captivate some of America’s most prominent 20th-century artists. This collection of historical images provides a glimpse into what Ridgefield once was and how it grew into what it is today.
