Sections were once known as Kindermack, Steenrapie, Old Bridge and New Bridge. George Washington, in 1776, retreated across New Bridge and the hill above was fortified by the British in 1778. In 1780 the Americans encamped in town with the HQ of Gen. Washington at New Bridge. Incorporated as the Borough of Riverside in 1894, the name was changed in 1930 to River Edge. The Borough Hall, home of former Mayor Elmer Howell, was enlarged and renovated in 1941.
