From the mid-18th century, what is now Wyckoff was a community within Franklin Township, which consisted of most of northern Bergen County west of the Saddle River. Starting in the 1840s, several new municipalities were created from portions of Franklin Township, so that today what is now Wyckoff borders eight different communities. Wyckoff was formed as a township by an Act of the New Jersey Legislature on November 2, 1926, replacing Franklin Township, based on the results of a referendum held that day. Portions of Wyckoff were ceded to Midland Park based on the results of a referendum held on June 9, 1931.[1] Franklin Township existed in Bergen County, New Jersey and was established in 1771 when Saddle River Township was subdivided. ...

The most commonly given origin for the name Wyckoff, which was the origin accepted by the town committee when the town was established, is that Wyckoff is from the Lenape word "wickoff", meaning high ground, or that it is from "wickok" meaning water.[2] A less widely held theory is that the town was named for Brooklyn judge Pieter Claesen Wyckoff (1625-1694). The surname comes from the Dutch words "Wyk," meaning parish and "Hof," meaning court. None of these origins is supported with solid historical evidence. The town has 13 churches, one synagogue, five public schools, three volunteer fire stations, and one volunteer ambulance corps. For the language, see Lenape language. ...

History

The first human inhabitants of the area were Lenni Lenape Native Americans who lived north of the Raritan River and spoke a Munsee dialect of Algonquian. Sicomac, said to mean "resting place for the departed" or "happy hunting ground", is an area of Wyckoff that, according to tradition, was the burial place of many Native Americans, including Chief Oratam of the Ackingshacys, and many stores and buildings there are named after the area's name, including Sicomac Elementary School.[3] Most Native Americans had left by the 19th century, although a small group lived near Clinton Avenue until 1939. The Lenape or Lenni-Lenape (later named Delaware Indians by Europeans) were, in the 1600s, loosely organized bands of Native American people practicing small-scale agriculture to augment a largely mobile hunter-gatherer society in the region around the Delaware River, the lower Hudson River, and western Long Island Sound. ...

What is today Wyckoff was part of Saddle River Township, which included all of Bergen County west of the Saddle River. Saddle River Township was split up in 1771 with the area containing Wyckoff becoming Franklin Township. By 1755, about 100 families lived in the Franklin Township area, of which, no more than 20 were in what is now Wyckoff. Franklin Township (1771) consisted of what is today Ho-Ho-Kus (seceded 1849), Ridgewood (seceded 1876), Midland Park (seceded 1894), Oakland (seceded 1902), Franklin Lakes (seceded 1922), and Wyckoff. The size of Franklin Township decreased as areas seceded and were incorporated into their own towns. After Franklin Lakes was established in 1922, Franklin Township consisted of only the area known locally as Wyckoff. On November 2, 1926, residents voted (243 positive votes out of 337) to change the name from Franklin Township to the Township of Wyckoff. In 1931, part of Wyckoff was transferred to Midland Park.

In 2005, a major multi-school expansion project was on the ballots on Election Day, and was passed. Each taxpayer would need to pay an extra $14 each month for almost two years to cover the cost of the project that would add 2-12 rooms into each school, to help with over-crowding in Wyckoff. The construction began in Eisenhower Middle School, the most crowded, in Spring of 2006. Extra precautions had and have to be taken, because the construction is going on while students are in school. During the summer of 2006, in-the-building renovations started, while it was safer to bring larger object in through the halls. One science classroom and a social studies classroom next to it had the wall between the two moved, and the social studies classroom became 1/3 its previous size, and is now the copy center, and will become a hallway to connect the original building and the new expansion. The science classroom became the new guidance office. The older, and smaller guidance office became a special-education classroom. Eisenhower's construction should be completed by early September of 2007. The elementary schools' construction will definitely be completed by September of 2008, but will probably be finished by early 2008.

New Jersey - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (6601 words)
New Jersey is a politically competitive state; the Governorship alternated between the parties from the election of Richard J. Hughes in 1961 until Democrat Jon Corzine was elected to replace a Democrat in 2005; the legislature has also switched hands, and one house was evenly divided from 1999–2001.
New Jersey is also home to several other urban legends, such as the ghost of Annie's Road in Totowa, Midgetville in Edgewater, Albino Village in Clifton, the supposed KKK hotbed Whipporwill Valley Road in Middletown, the haunted and demon-possessed Clinton Road in West Milford, and the Witch of Igoe Road in Marlboro.
New Jersey is often known by outsiders with little respect for the state as "America's Armpit", both for its shape and location on the Eastern seaboard and for the smell that exists especially along the New Jersey Turnpike (I-95) due to the landfills, chemical plants, and wetlands mud.
