garden state plaza mall paramusParamus is a borough in Bergen County, New Jersey that was incorporated in 1922. At this time, it was a rural area of celery farms and dirt roads. Today, it is the land of enormous malls and shopping centers, making it one of the top retail zip codes in the United States. After the opening of the George Washington Bridge in 1931, it was transformed into a shipping mecca. The Garden State Plaza and the Bergen Mall opened in 1957 and 1958.



The Paramus area, settled by the Lenape people, was named "Peremessing," which meant that it turkey statuehad an abundant population of Wild Turkey. The 19th century account claims that "the Paramus estate was purchased from the Native Americans for a quart of whiskey and a pound of tobacco." On the other hand, there is a historical record of European settlement, which is more detailed. Albert Saboroweski immigrated from Poland via the Dutch Ship 'The Fox' in 1662 and settled in the Dutch West Indies Company town of Ackensack, which is now called Hackensack. Here, he started a family and his son Jacob was kidnapped by the Lenape and held for 15 years. When he was returned, the Lenape explained that they had taken the child in order to teach him their language so that he could serve as a translator. After returning him, they also granted Sabroroweski 2,000 acres of land which became known as the "Paramus Patent." Paramus road was once an Indian trail even before the arrival of the first settlers. During the colonial years it was a main artery of travel for both the British and American armies during the American Revolution.
