Garden State Historic Preservation Trust Fund
Capital Preservation Grant Level I
Grant Award: $46,980 (2002)
Grant Recipient: Ramapo Reformed Church
County: Bergen
Municipality: Mahwah

The Ramapo Reformed Church is locally significant as one of ten remaining Federal-period churches in the County. The smallest of the Reformed Churches and the oldest frame church in the county, it was the home of two faiths, the Lutheran and the Dutch Reformed congregations. Situated at an important crossroads of the American Revolution where a supply store belonging to Robert Erskine was located, it is also Mahwah's oldest public building and served as the town meeting house.

The grant helped fund a preservation plan and the structural stabilization of the cupola and tower.
