The village of Ridgewood was created in 1894, and given the same boundaries as Ridgewood Township, with the village serving as the municipal government while the township governed the school district. Ridgewood is one of only four municipalities in New Jersey with a village type of government. The first home in Ridgewood was built by Johannes van Emburgh in 1700, on his 250-acre tract. Ridgewood borders Glen Rock, Ho-Ho-Kus, Midland Park, Paramus, Washington, and Wyckoff, in Bergan County, as well as Hawthorne, in Passaic County.
