WHS Receives 2023 Grant

The Wyckoff Historical Society has received a grant for 2023 which will be used to cover our operating costs for this year.

Funding has been made possible in part through grant funds administered by the Bergen County Division of Cultural and Historic Affairs, Department of Parks, through a General Operating Support grant from the New Jersey Historical Commission, a division of the Department of State.
If you ever visited Union Cemetery in Wyckoff to investigate the 18th and 19th century headstones, have you wondered who the people interred there were and what occupations they held when they lived in the Wyckoff area?

Our new audio tour, Headphones & Headstones will answer many of these questions.
