English Neighborhood Reformed Church
Ridgefield, Bergen County



Virtually identical to the Old Paramus Reformed Church in Ridgewood, this stone building was constructed of stone from an earlier church, in 1793. The congregation was organized in 1770, obviously in an area where English settlers, rather than Dutch, were in the majority.
    It once had a taller steeple, but that was replaced sometime in this century, I believe.

National Register.
