The Historical Archives of the Borough of Cresskill seeks to preserve the historical heritage of our local community, and in cases where appropriate, the heritage of surrounding communities in the Northern Valley, Bergen County, and the State of New Jersey.
The staff of the Historical Archives encourages donations and contributions of pertinent materials, collects, arranges, catalogues, scans and digitizes the material in it's possession. The Historical Archives serves as an educational and cultural resource for our citizens.
MAYOR GUY A. COWLEY'S PHOTO HAS BEEN LOCATED!
As many of you know, finding a photo of former Mayor Guy A. Cowley (1912 - 1913) was a top priority for us. Harold Tallman, Cresskill Historian in the 1960's, initiated and created a Wall of Honor photo display in the Borough Hall which presently displays photos of our mayors from 1894 to the present. The frame is now filled thanks to the diligent efforts of Ms. Beth Potter of Haworth.
