Etymology

In 1682, the East Jersey legislature created Bergen County, consisting of all the land in the peninsula between the Hackensack and Hudson Rivers; that is, the eastern portions of what today is Bergen and Hudson Counties. In 1693, Bergen County was divided into two townships: Bergen Township in the south and Hackensack Township in the north. The dividing line between the two townships was the current Hudson-Bergen county border.[8]
