This historic marker, which is located next to the Emerson Train Station, explains the history of the Kinderkamack area and Kinderkamack Road. The road was surveyed during the Revolutionary War. A great deal of activity and movements of troops and raiding parties occurred in Bergen County, and Kinderkamack Road was used often by both American and British forces. A ten-mile stretch of road, running from Hackensack to Montvale, still bears the name Kinderkamack Road. This sign is located at the approximate mid-point.
