History of the Hopper African American Cemetery In Upper Saddle River
January 24 @ 7:00 PM – 8:30 PM
Did you know that New Jersey was the last state to abolish slavery in the North? Would you have guessed that experts say there may be more than 100 people buried in the Hopper African American Cemetery? And it is just one of many private cemeteries for African Americans that existed in Upper Saddle River.
Join the USR Historical Society on Tuesday, January 24 at 7 p.m. at the USR Library as The Rev. Robert Fretz shares the history of the Hopper African American Cemetery. Rev. Fretz began a project to restore the cemetery in 2008. It was delayed when severe damage was done by Hurricane Sandy and was finally completed this year with the help of Daniel Hynes who chose it as his Eagle Scout project.
Come learn some facts about the enslaved African Americans and their descendants who helped to settle the Saddle River Valley — and about the little cemetery on a hill that speaks to the part they played. All are welcome
