I have worked there. What do you need to know? There are buildings that go back to around 1800.

Default Wyckoff, NJ

Well first off I would like to thank you for replying. I am wondering if you have ever been by the Deep Voll, the Ravine at Deep Brook and if you know anything about that area. Have you ever taken a stroll around there. Have you seen anything like, umm fossils or arrow heads? How long have you worked in that area? Anything would be of help. Thank you once again.

No, I haven't taken a stroll or found arrowheads or anything like that. I worked there from 1996-1998. As I said, there are some buildings that go back to the beginning of the 19th century. It was all dutch farmland back then. Very likely there were natives in the area, but I don't know anything about where you would find artifacts.

If you haven't looked already, here is the "official" history -

You may also find some assistance through the bergen county historical society. http://www.bergencountyhistory.org/

They have some things in the steuben house in river edge that pre date the revolution - unfortunately, they are right on the banks of the hackensack river, and some artifacts were seriously damaged with the flooding.
