So this is where the street name "Banta Place" (in front of Holy Trinity School) came from!

Remember where the army recruitment place was - that one-block street that ran from State St to Main St right into the big Peoples Trust bank building?

That's Banta Place.

Holy Trinity School sits at the intersection of Maple Ave and Pangborn Place (5 Pangborn is where you used to ride the elevator after school at HTS).

I wouldn't think that streets would be named after grocers and there are a number of prominent Bantas in Hackensack's history, so let's ask someone who may know where Banta Place got its name from.

Mr. Editor?

The Banta family tree is big in this these parts.  Check out Ancestry.com or www.bergencountyhistory.org/forums for Banta.  I'll try to find a condensed family history somewhere. Banta Place may be named for anyone of them.
