— Clarence S. Stein, Architect —

Radburn Station, located in the Borough of Fair Lawn, was built in 1930 and designed by the architect Clarence S. Stein. Stylistically, the building is significant since the station is a fine example of the Dutch Colonial Revival trend in architecture. The prominent side gambrel roof on the station can be seen as a gesture to the local Dutch Colonial tradition. The station is of further interest because it is part of the planned community, Radburn, New Jersey, which was the first American Realization of the utopian Garden City concept. Clarence S. Stein, the designer of the town in conjunction with Henry Wright, was also architect for the station. Radburn Station is located on the former Bergen County Branch, part of the New York Division of the Erie Railroad, which was built to bypass congestion on the Main Line in heavily trafficked Paterson and Passaic. The Main Line was originally chartered Paterson & Hudson River Railroad in 1831 by a group of Paterson businessmen, and terminated in Passaic. The line was extended through Bergen Hill and reached Jersey City in 1838. The Paterson & Ramapo Railroad Company was chartered in 1841 and ran from Paterson to connect with the Erie Railroad's Piermont branch into New York State. The Erie Railroad acquired both of these Paterson-based railroads c. 1850 and incorporated these lines into the New York Division. Radburn Station was listed on both the State and National Registers of Historic Places in 1984. Photo Credit: Dan Bernacki. Sponsored by NJ Transit
