As the gateway to the Ramapo
Pass, Suffern became an
important stop after the Erie
Railroad laid its tracks from
the Piermont Pier in 1841.
In 1848, rails were extended
from Jersey City to Suffern.
From this period to the mid
20th century Suffern became
a hub for summer tourist
and commuter service. The
magnificent 1887 Victorian
station, built on this site,
was razed in 1941 when the
stop was relocated to the
south. The smaller Wells
Fargo Express Mail depot of
1908 symbolizes the earlier
station's architecture.
