Revolutionary War Street Marker
Passaic St. and Maywood Ave.
Map / Directions to the Maywood Revolutionary War Marker
Within the small park with the Welcome to the Borough of Maywood sign, there is a historic marker which notes that Passaic Street was originally known as Paramus Road, one of Bergen County's first colonial roads.
A great deal of activity and troop movement occurred in Bergen County during the Revolutionary War, and Paramus Road was used often by both American and British forces. A five-mile stretch of this road in Paramus and Ridgewood is still called Paramus Road. 
There is also a flag pole and plaque in this park which were dedicated during the Bicentennial, commemorating the 200th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence.
