How Immigration
& the Railroad
Shaped Our Towns

SATURDAY, APRIL 28, 10:00 am to 4:00 pm

The towns in NW Bergen County were settled in
the 18th century by immigrants from countries in
Europe and Africa. Through the centuries the
number of countries grew. Today we have
immigrants from all over the world. Come
see how they impacted the towns where
they settled and how they enrich us today.

The railroad came to NW Bergen in the mid-19th
century, bringing with it, jobs, prosperity and immigrants.
Come see how trains affected our towns,
the immigrants that came on them and that
came to work on them and stayed. Businesses
developed around the railroad stations, defining
what would become the towns of today.
