Rutherford is a lovely tree-lined town of many stately old homes. Today, the small-town atmosphere is still maintained while Rutherfords 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 towns 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.
