Oradell Train Station sits on the corner of Maple Avenue and Oradell Avenue in Oradell. It still runs on the Pascack Valley Line, which brings commuters to various spots from Spring Valley, NY to Hoboken and everywhere in between. This station is listed under both the National Register of Historic Places and the New Jersey Register of Historic Places. According to a few articles I found online, this baby is a Victorian, built in 1890. After over 100 years of use, the building started to deteriorate and in 1995, a grant was approved to restore the building.
On Facebook, there is a page called “Vintage Bergen County.” I was trying to locate the picture that was posted after a little Photoshop. It shows the original building in a black and white, that blends into a picture from today, in color. It’s amazing how beautifully perfect the restoration project was. As you can tell, I adore historic preservation and am grateful it was done. 20 years later, it still looks great. The pictures below were taken on a nicer winter day and I even took one for the team, walking through and standing in the snow for a few shots. You’re welcome and enjoy!
