History

Upper Saddle River was settled in the 18th century principally by Dutch settlers who constructed mills along the Saddle River. The area was granted borough status in 1894 and remained principally rural until the 1950s. The suburban growth of New Jersey affected Upper Saddle River and surrounding municipalities, as the population quadrupled from 1960 to 1980. The population has remained fairly constant in the past twenty years.

Predominantly a residential community consisting of one acre (4,000 m2) lots, Upper Saddle River also contains a library, police station, fire station, ambulance corps, municipal hall, and three primary schools. Commerce and industry are concentrated along the town's western border along Route 17. Postal service is shared with the neighboring borough of Saddle River.

Upper Saddle River was formed as a borough by an Act of the New Jersey Legislature on November 22, 1894, from portions of Hohokus Township and Orvil Township, based on the results of a referendum held two days earlier, at the height of the Boroughitis phenomenon then sweeping through Bergen County.[7]
