Living in Annandale, NJ
When the Central Railroad of New Jersey built a westward track through northern New Jersey in 1852, a station was built outside of Beaver Brook that would become the village of Annandale. The farming community maintained its sleepy demeanor for the next century, until the Round Valley Recreation Area was opened in 1977.
Today, Annandale is an energized, invigorated town that is proud of what it has accomplished over the past few decades. With a great school system, involved senior citizen population and new style of local government, the town makes a great home for residents of all ages.
Residents here are able to enjoy the hilly, beautiful scenery that characterizes the northern New Jersey landscape. The surrounding small towns are the some of the most picturesque in the region, and give Annandale residents a place to eat, shop and enjoy other cultural opportunities.
