Save the date: I am happy to announce that the the Coalition of Northwest Bergen Historical Organizations has asked me to talk at their annual luncheon on Wednesday, Oct. 29, about three of my favorite topics -- the Celery Farm, the Fell House, and John Fell.
The event will be held at the Ramsey Country Club from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
I'll explain the unsung John Fell’s heroic role in the Revolutionary War and discuss the house that bears his name and the swamp that he owned -- better known today as the 107-acre Celery Farm.
The tale, set in 1938, features the Ho-Ho-Kus Speedway, an armed bank robbery in Allendale, and a cameo appearance by the Darlington Schoolhouse in Mahwah.
