Leonia, NJ Neighborhood Information

Neighborhood Facts

Town History

Atemus Ward would be pleased by the Leonia of today. In 1899, his Leonia Heights Land company set out to create a community that would be unique; an idea sparked by a trip to Leonia on the Edgewater Ferry that year. Ward, the head of the New York advertising concern, envisioned a white collar community whose residents would enjoy open space and an upper-class residential environment with an emphasis on education & culture. Nature has already graced the farming community with tranquility and plenty of greenery; the tranquility had been interrupted during the Revolutionary War by British Raids on Local farms and General Washington's retreat through the area towards Trenton.
