Please enjoy a trip back in time through photographs from our archives.
The Rock in the glen, from which our borough gets its name, was left here approximately 15,000 years ago by the Wisconsin glacier. It is a "glacial erratic". Weighing about 590 tons, geologists believe that our granite boulder was brought here by the glacier from the Hudson River Valley in New York State.
Do you ever wonder what your neighborhood or your house looked like in the past? These photos from our collection might give you a clue.
Check out how things have changed around town over the years since Glen Rock became an independent borough in 1894.
Fourth of July
Glen Rock's I.D.A. (Independence Day Association) was founded in 1939. Marching bands and fancy floats have been a tradition on July 4th ever since. For videos of old parades (and the town-wide fair afterwards), please check out our video links in the Gallery.
