Hackensack History / Re: The "A Stroll Down Main Street" exhibit (McCrory)

Check this out. It's on the south wall of 151-153 Main. Woolworths was at 149 Main.

I'm posting it here as johnnyg asked about it 6+ years ago. (Better late than never).

This information is from the Bergen County Historic Site Survey which I converted into a walking tour document some years ago.

Second Marcus Jewelers. Constructed 1897. Architect: William Augustus Lambert. Style: Romanesque Revival. Facade: Pair of gablets with large, arched opening with projecting bay window (now gone) on 2nd story. The Odd Fellows Hall is an interesting, eclectic building with bold, round arched openings with conspicuous rock faced stone trim. In 1898, the building was described as "one of the finest in town". The building was erected in 1897 as the second hall for the oldest paternal lodge in Bergen County, founded in 1848. The U.S. Post Office was located her until 1910. In 1910, the stores were leased to J.G. McCrory & Co., five and dime store. The building as listed in Forbe's Key to the Architects of Greater New York of 1899, 1900 and 1901 as the only representative work of William Augustus Lambert who had offices in Manhattan until 1896 and lived in Hackensack. He designed a large number of houses in Hackensack.

(Thanks to Jeffrey Muller for alerting me.)

The entrance is mid-block on E. Camden.  Across the street is E. Camden and Moore (Library).  Yes, you circled the entrance.

What looks like a street on the north side of E. Camden is a driveway for the project and/or stores on Main St. I forget. 

Does this help?
