As you drive leisurely on Route 208/287, it’s almost impossible to imagine that three centuries ago, the highway was nothing but a quiet tree-lined path in a valley that served the Lenni-Lenape tribe. The very first Dutch settlers who set foot in the area were so captivated by it that they bought a whopping 5500 acres of the land.

In 1695, Arent Schuyler, an able representative of a group of Dutch associates paid about 250 New York Pounds to the Minsi Indians and Sachems who occupied the land. The Minsi Indians enjoyed their land as they hunted in the forests, fished in the rivers and farmed on the fertile valley land. The early Dutch settlers named the area De Panne, which means ‘The Ponds.’

The Dutch settlers did not all arrive at once. They streamed in over the years. By 1710, there were about 10 families in the region. And since the Lenni-Lenape were peaceful people, it was easy for the Dutch to conquer them.

In the 18th century, Oakland evolved into a serene lumbering and farming area with lots of mills powered by waters from the Ramapo river and a couple of other streams in the region. There were dirt paths, footpaths, and horse paths that were widened as the need for it arose.

There were a handful of signs and when you needed directions, the answer you got was own yonder by the stone house.’ Dirt roads were built leading to Paterson, Pompton Lakes, Suffern, and Hackensack. Most of these were created using shovels and picks.

Given the fact that the area was connected by dirt roads, the revolutionary war didn’t take place in Oakland. Dirt roads meant floods, mud, holes, and ruts. But despite the war happening outside the area, the families in the valley lived in constant fear of being raided by the British.

Fast forward to 1902, Oakland was incorporated as a borough and experienced exponential growth after the Second World War.
