History & History Related Items

Allendale history:

Here is a history page for Allendale.

The early inhabitants of the area were Native American Indians who lived here alone until the early 1700's. At this time, a few settlers began to come and build homes and farm the land. Early on, the area was controlled by the East New Jersey Board of Proprietors, most of whom did not even live in the area.

In the early1800's, the area was known as "the Turnpike" after the new toll road running through the town. It was called the Franklin turnpike and was once part of the Albany Post Road. In the 1840's the railroad came to town with the first trains running in October of 1848. The rail route was surveyed by Joseph Warner Allen, an engineer. While working here, he lived with the Ackerman family in the old Fell House. When the time came for an official name, his name was incorporated into "Allendale." Much more history information may be found on the above history link.
