Overview

Then & Now: Rutherford documents the changes that have occurred in Rutherford through the years by comparing and contrasting numerous vintage photographs with views of today. Rutherford is a lovely tree-lined town of many stately old homes. Today, the small-town atmosphere is still maintained while Rutherford's location provides its residents access to all of the convenience of the cosmopolitan, social, economic, and cultural advantages of nearby New York City.

This volume reflects on a time when horse-drawn carriages traveled on dirt lanes and when children were educated in one-room schoolhouses. Rutherford today enjoys modern modes of travel and national blue-ribbon schools of excellence. These pages trace the emergence of a diversity of churches and schools, tour significant homes, and explore the transportation system that helped shape the entire region. Most importantly, this history reflects on the people of Rutherford, including the town's connection to poet William Carlos Williams. Then & Now: Rutherford is an enlightening journey back in time to discover the people, places, and events that shaped this Bergen County community.

    Rutherford, NJ Finally Gets Some Recognition!

    As a lifelong and proud resident of Rutherford, NJ I had to buy this book. I was not disappointed. This is a fascinating look at Rutherford, it's history, it's people and it's beautiful architecture. The photos are great and the accounts of local history are very interesting. Who knew that where I live now used to be one of the oldest farms in New Jersey? Native Americans once used the river banks down the street from me as a landing point to trade and make their way to the bigger cities. Our history is a part of who we are today and to understand each other we must understand the people who have gone before us who were brave enough to settle here, making Rutherford their own. This book should be included in every history class in the Rutherford school system.
