Troops of the American army camped in this vicinity from August 22 to September 3, 1780, in order to forage for food and horses. The encampment extended to the north and east of Teaneck Road for about two miles. Situated near British-held New York City and mindful of enemy danger, General George Washington urged his men to display "that conduct, fortitude and bravery which ought to distinguish troops fighting for their country".
