About the Event

The Bergen County Historical Society (BCHS) invites the public to join us this Memorial Day, Monday, May 29th at 10 am - 11 am.

Each year the society honors the U.S. veterans of all wars who fought and died in service with a wreath laying at the grave of General Enoch Poor in the burial ground of the First Dutch Reformed Church on the Green. 

This year BCHS Past President James Smith will speak on General Enoch Poor followed by a tour of the historic cemetery with BCHS Past President Deborah Powell. Burials are believed to have begun in 1696 and the cemetery is on the National Register. The late BCHS historian Reginald McMahon estimated 21 veterans of the American Revolution are interred in this ancient burial ground.
