Formed from portions of Washington Township, the borough of Westwood was incorporated in 1894. Beore the Europeans came, the area was settled by the Lenni-Lenape. In the early 1800s, the area that would become Westwood was part of Harrington Township, before becoming part of Washington Township in 1840. Its population grew rapidly when the Hackensack and New York Railroad came through in 1870, the same year that service between Westwood and New York City, via Jersey City and a ferry ride, began. Westwood is in Bergen County, New Jersey.
