About the Wortendyke Barn:

The Wortendyke Barn has been a Pascack Valley landmark since its construction on 500 acres of land bought by the Wortendyke family in 1735.  It was used continually as a barn well into the 20th century and is one of only six pure Dutch barn types in Bergen County.  This New World Dutch Barn showcases Bergen County’s history through unique, educational exhibits designed to let you explore farm life.

In 1997 the barn opened as a museum with agriculture exhibits that include 18th and 19th century farm implements and tools, and the history of the Wortendyke family farm.  The main feature of the museum is the barn itself, an outstanding example of the vernacular architecture referred to as a New World Dutch Barn.

This accessible pre-Revolutionary museum, located at 13 Pascack Road, Park Ridge, is open on Sunday afternoons from noon to 4:00 p.m.  Admission is free.  Schools, scout troops and other organizations are welcome during the week by appointment.

For information on the museum, or to make a group appointment, call the Division of Cultural and Historic Affairs, Bergen County Department of Parks, at (201) 336-7267 or e-mail [email protected]
