About Rochelle Park



Even at 145 years, the Township of Rochelle Park is young. Yet, a town does not spring full-blown upon the world on the date of its incorporation, any more than an individual springs suddenly into being upon receipt of a diploma.

Evidence remains of a long history of the name“Rochelle Park” and of the people who were born, lived, and died here-and even of some who came hundreds of years before the name was conceived.

Our hope is to highlight these reminders of the past and to call attention to those who were, who are, and who will become part of the Story of Rochelle Park.
