New Bridge served as a battleground, fort, encampment ground, military headquarters, and intelligence-gathering post in every year of the American Revolution. The Steuben House, a state historic site, is the only extant building remaining from the 1776 Retreat through Bergen County, the Retreat to Victory. The house was Washington's HQ while 14,000 soldiers camped nearby for 2 weeks in 1780. It has been the Bergen County Historical Society's HQ since 1939. HNBL is only open for events by BCHS, the grounds are open dawn to dusk. BCHS is the largest landowner at HNBL and the largest historical society in New Jersey. Our collections were begun in 1902 when the organization was founded. They represent the largest collection of artifacts and documents reflecting the history of Bergen County.
