Harrison, initially part of Essex County and later of Bergen County, is today in Hudson County. The original township, dating from 1840, was larger than the present mile-square area, which was established in 1867. With close to two hundred images, Harrison examines this community, which since its earliest days has been synonymous with industry. The simple country lane along which copper was transported to its Schuyler Avenue destination soon became Harrison Avenue-today, a main thoroughfare in the town known as "the Hive of Industry." This close-knit community of hardworking residents shares not only an industrial history-with well-known corporations, including RCA, Otis Elevator, and Worthington-but also a great athletic heritage. Among its best-known residents is Frank E. Rodgers, who served as mayor for more than four decades.
