MAHWAH, N.J. -- The Mahwah Museum will open three new exhibits to the public this month.

History and artifacts of each will go on display Saturday, Sept. 19 and remain through next June.

“The Ramsey Journal and the Dater Family, 1892-1967” tells the story of one of the county’s oldest newspapers from the time it was established by John Y. Dater II in 1892 until it was sold in 1967.

“Mail on the Move in Northwest Bergen” gives the history of the Colonial and U.S. Post Offices of Mahwah since the 1700s.

“Hohokus Township, Mahwah and Borough-itis in Northwest Bergen” traces the development of Mahwah and various other boroughs that were part of Ho-Ho-Kus Township.

“Borough-itis” is the expression that describes the breakup of large districts, many dating from Colonial times, that occurred across New Jersey in the 1890s, chiefly because the legislature passed laws making it easier for town governments to form as boroughs.

The museum is at 201 Franklin Turnpike and is open from 1-4 p.m. Wednesdays and weekends. For more information, e-mail director@mahwahmuseum.org, call (201) 512-0099, or click here for the museum’s website.
