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.
