Hackensack, New Jersey

The City of Hackensack is the county seat of Bergen County, New Jersey. Located on the Hackensack River about 12 miles from the center of Manhattan, Hackensack has a population of just over 43,000. The city provides a mix of residential neighborhoods, industrial areas and green spaces. Hackensack is home to a campus of Fairleigh Dickinson University. Other representative employers include Hackensack University Medical Center and PAREXEL International. The city is also home to a restored World War II submarine, the U.S.S. Ling, now a museum ship.

Originally founded as a part of New Barbadoes Township in 1693, the village of Hackensack was designated as the seat of Bergen County in 1710 and officially incorporated as a city in 1921. Early economic industry in Hackensack was mainly related to agriculture and transport. Ferries and stagecoaches moved goods and people to and from New York City, and taverns flourished along the trade routes. Hackensack River clay proved suitable for pottery and bricks, and companies such as the Mehrhof Brickmaking Works and Hackensack Brick Company were major employers in the late 19th century. Other prominent businesses included William Campbell & Company (wallpaper), Givernaud Brothers (silk-weaving) and the Thomas Jewelry Manufacturing Company. The Hackensack Gas Light Company incorporated in 1861, and provided gas street lighting for the city beginning in 1868. Today, as part of the Public Service Gas and Electric Company of Newark, the original facility still operates as an electrical substation. Hackensack Hospital was founded in 1888, after a delay in treatment resulted in the death of railroad employee. Today, the medical center is the county's largest employer.
