Brief History

This is Rockleigh, New Jersey—population approximately 500. Here you may stroll colonial roads where Revolutionary troops once marched. Rockleigh’s landmarks lie within a 246.45 acre historic district, and lie adjacent to the historic district of Palisades, New York. We are traditionally connected to this area by Rockleigh Road.

During the Revolutionary War the area remained steeped in conflict between patriot and Tory. [Read More]
