A brief history of Allendale
Allendale was formed on November 8, 1894, from portions of Franklin Township (remainder now Wyckoff), Hohokus Township (remainder now Mahwah) and Orvil Township (remainder now Waldwick). The borough was formed during the "Boroughitis" phenomenon then sweeping through Bergen County, in which 26 boroughs were formed in the county in 1894 alone. The borough was named for Joseph Warner Allen, a surveyor for the Erie Railroad. Babe Ruth would frequently vacation at the Allendale Hotel, which remains in use as a rooming house.
According to the United States Census Bureau, the borough had a total area of 3.119 square miles (8.076 km2), including 3.097 square miles (8.020 km2) of land and 0.022 square miles (0.056 km2) of water (0.69%). The borough borders the Bergen County municipalities of Mahwah, Ramsey, Saddle River, Waldwick, and Wyckoff.
