Local ladies, Judy Abma & Jean Hildebrandt were recently awarded the 2019 Bergen County Historic Preservation Award.
On May 9th, 2019 Judy Abma Jean Hildebrandt and 6 other women received an award from the Bergen County Board of Chosen Freeholders at their annual Historic Preservation Awards event. The category for their award was “Preservation Leadership.”
Initially, in 2009 while Judy and Jean were involved in the Wyckoff Historical Society, they recognized the fact that by combining their efforts and working together, they could strengthen all groups with joint programming and networking, while using limited resources more effectively an thus accomplish much more.
Zabriskie House docent writes her first book and its now available in local book stores! Nancy Laracy, a faithful docent at Zabriskie House, even amidst her chronic pain has written a book about how the family pet rabbit, Bunny Boy, with the similar autoimmune disease as Nancy, helped save her life. BUNNY BOY AND ME is a story of how strength, resilience and love for a pet can be a powerful tool coping with illness. Congratulations Nancy!!!

The Trustees of the Zabriskie Huose continue to hold events to raise funds for the on-going updates and renovations on Wyckoff’s historic gem, the Zabriskie House. Recently the uneven walkway by the entrance to Judge John Zabriskie’s study were re-pointed. They are more even now and better for walking! The upper front Porch was also fixed and re-painted. Some interior rugs which were worn and tattered were cleaned and fixed. Also the outside walkways in the back of the house by the gardens were cleaned up and filled with new gravel by local Boy Scouts volunteering their time.
