Saddle River Reformed Church
Saddle River, Bergen County

The congregation was organized in 1784 and this traditional Reformed Dutch church erected in 1819. It is very similar to buildings in Hackensack, Paramus and even Marlboro. Notice the door-window-oculus-window fenestration of the tower, and the Gothic arch shaped fanlights over the three doors.
