The Wyckoff Historical Society was formed in January 1974 by three Wyckoff couples. Bylaws and a charter were drawn up and meetings were held at residents’ homes. The first public meeting was held June 29. The Society was incorporated on December 13, 1974.
OUR MISSION STATEMENT
The Wyckoff Historical Society abides by its original mission to research, preserve and educate about the rich history of Wyckoff, New Jersey.
The Society is a separate organization from the Wyckoff Historic Preservation Commission and the Zabriskie House. The Wyckoff Historical Society is a 501(c)3 charity independent of local government. and receives no funding from the town of Wyckoff. Our primary objectives are to preserve and maintain Union Cemetery and the historic Barbershop, in addition to offering public programs about Wyckoff and its surrounds’ noteworthy history.
Our general meetings and programs are held on the third Tuesday of every month at the Wyckoff Public Library at 7 pm. We will announce when in-person programs will resume.
We invite you to take a trip into the past when Wyckoff was farmland, mills, and pastures. Read about the early settlers who built the stone houses, churches, schools and businesses that formed Wyckoff. Although most of the farms and pastures are gone, many historic homes remain, tended carefully by current owners, and giving you a peak into Wyckoff’s history. The next time you drive around Wyckoff, drive a bit slower, and remember Wyckoff’s past.
