Historical Committee

The Historical Committee is comprised of volunteers who convene regularly to discuss matters of historical interest and importance to the Borough. The group has participated in letter-writing campaigns to support the preservation of Blauvelt Mansion, in addition to attending Mayor and Council meetings and advocating for the preservation of Oradell's historical artifacts and landmarks.

The committee meets at Borough Hall (Room 201) on the fourth Monday of the month at 7:30 p.m. No meetings are held in July, August or December. Meetings are open to the public and new members are always welcome.
