Introduction to Bergenfield, New Jersey
The earliest settlers in this area were Dutch immigrants. They gave it the name Schraalenburgh, which means barren hill. In 1873, the New York and New Jersey Railroad decided to construct a railway station in this area. However, when the residents could not finalize a name among themselves, the railroad authorities named it Bergen Fields. This was later changed to Bergenfield when the town got incorporated.
