History of Oradell, New Jersey
History and Overview
Oradell, New Jersey is a small suburb of New York City within Bergen County with a population just under 8,000. The borough was incorporated in 1894 under the original name, Delford. In November of 1920, the borough was officially renamed to Oradell. It was formed during a period known as “Boroughitis” that swept through Bergen County in the late 1800s, when 26 boroughs were created in the year 1894.
It was crafted from parts of Harrington Township, Rochelle Park, and Palisades Township. Oradell is ranked as the seventh best place to live in Bergen County by New Jersey Monthly, as well as the overall 68th best place to live in the state.
One of the major places of interest in Oradell is the Atwood-Blauvelt mansion that was built in 1897 on Kinderkamack Road. Purchased at foreclosure in 2013, the new owners have plans to turn the residence into an assisted living facility in the near future. The borough is also home to Wally Schirra, “the first Jerseyman to orbit Earth,” and there is a plaque in his honor in the middle of a small park at the center of town. Oradell was also featured in the movie Taxi starring Jimmy Fallon, where the comedian read a map that showed an uncompleted highway off the Garden State Parkway running through the borough.
