Wyckoff History

The Lenni Lenape Native Americans were the original inhabitants of the area. Wyckoff was initially a part of the Saddle River Township. Most of the early settlers were Dutch, and a major part of the land was used for farming purposes. Rail service began in 1870, and gradually the infrastructure started developing. Wyckoff was officially incorporated on November 2, 1926. The town possibly derives its name from either the Lenape word "wickoff," which means "high ground," or from "wickok", meaning "water." According to other sources, however, the town was named after Brooklyn judge Pieter Claesen Wyckoff.
