  11. WORTENDYKE BARN MUSEUM OPEN!

    September 29, 12:00 PM - 4:00 PM @ Wortendyke Barn

    The Wortendyke Barn Museum, a National Register landmark, was part of the original 400+ acre Wortendyke family farm located in the Pascack Valley. The barn, built in 1760, is an outstanding example of the vernacular architecture referred to as a “New World Dutch Barn." Most were built between 1624 and 1820, wherever Dutch farmers settled along the Hudson, Hackensack, Passaic, Raritan and Mohawk rivers. The main feature of the museum is the barn building itself. It was made completely of local wood and massive anchor beams, supported by posts creating an H-frame, support the entire structure. These barns tended to be wider than long with very steep, sloping roofs that allowed for the large storage area. There are very few barns of this type in existence today. Exhibits include handmade 18th and 19th century farm implements and tools. Schools, scout troops and other organizations are welcome during the week by appointment.

    September 29, 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM @ Mahwah Museum

    The Mahwah Museum's exhibit "Neighborhoods of Mahwah: 1913-2013" highlight the history, changes and developments of the different areas of Mahwah Township during the last 100 years. We look at the rich history of these neighborhoods - their people, schools, churches, firehouses, businesses and organizations, and examine the history and cultural traditions behind the many diverse neighborhoods in the sprawling 26 square mile community known as Mahwah. Once known as Hohokus, the township was so large that distinct neighborhoods or hamlets were formed, many centered on schools or railroad depots. Many of these neighborhoods seceded to become surrounding towns and formed governments of their own; within Mahwah, the neighborhood tradition remained. West Mahwah, centered on industries and churches, became home to many immigrant families whose descendants remain active today.
