Old Paramus Reformed Church

Old Paramus Reformed Church has a rich past. The congregation was formed in the year 1725. During the American Revolution, the Paramus Church was the site of a Continental Army military post for four years during which clashes between American and British forces took place. It was also in the original church building that General George Washington held a session of the court-martial of General Charles Lee who disobeyed orders at the Battle of Monmouth in 1778. Washington had his headquarters here at the church a total of ten times during various days from 1778-1780.

Snowstorm -2017

Today Ridgewood in Bergen county ,New Jersey is supposed to have about 20 inches of snow. Took an early morning walk in the snow. It was fun though fingers went numb trying to take pictures.Not a soul in sight except for the snow ploughs doing the job for the village of Ridgewood. It is work from home day. So far enjoying the beauty of the landscape outside and enjoying the modern comforts of technology.

The Pictures taken are all on Oak St,the street on which I live.DSC_9447DSC_9448DSC_9453DSC_9454DSC_9455
