The origin of the name of Bergen County is a matter of debate.
Located in the northeastern corner of New Jersey and its Gateway Region, Bergen County is part of the New York City Metropolitan Area and is directly across the Hudson River from Manhattan, to which it is connected by the George Washington Bridge.
Bergen County saw skirmishes throughout the war as armies from both sides maneuvered across the countryside.Several sources attribute the name to Bergen, Norway, while others attribute it to Bergen, North Holland in the Netherlands.At the time of first European contact, Bergen County was inhabited by Native American people, particularly the Lenape Nation, whose sub-groups included the Tappan, Hackensack, and Rumachenanck (later called the Haverstraw), as named by the Dutch colonists.In 1852, the Erie Railroad began operating major rail services from Jersey City on the Hudson River to points north and west via leased right-of-way in the county.This became known as the Erie Main Line, and is still in use for passenger service today.
