History

Wyckoff was originally part of the Saddle Rock Township, but when the township was split in 1771, Wyckoff joined Franklin Lakes Township. It was a sparsely populated town of only about 20 families by 1775. In 1926 residents voted to change the name from Franklin Township to Wyckoff. By 1940 the population had grown to 100 families (about 4,000 residents). Once a farming town, there are only only two farms remaining: Abma’s Farm and Goffle Road Poultry Farm, Bergen County’s only remaining live market. Wyckoff had a train station that began serving customers in 1870, but service was ended in 1966.
