Neighborhood Facts

Town History

Indians of the Lenape Tribe occupied the land now called Closter. They were displaced by the Europeans, predominately the Dutch. For 200 years Dutch was the common language. English was not taught until 1770. Most of the Colonial architecture in the Hudson River Valley was Dutch in origin and over 20 of these original homes still remain and are still used by Closter residents. No other town in Bergen County boasts so great a concentration of houses built in or prior to 1740. In 1904, Borough of Closter was incorporated and present town boundaries were established encompassing 3.31 square miles with 150 acres of reservoirs and streams.
