You’d Never Know This Historic Park In New Jersey Is Hiding Under A Highway

New Jersey is home to a multitude of magnificent historic parks, from Morristown National Historic Park (George Washington’s 1780 encampment site) to Wharton State Forest (home to the historic Batsto Village, Atsion Village, AND Harrisville Village). We’re also home to a smaller (yet still significant) historic park, hidden under a highway. I must have driven over it dozens of times before I discovered this little gem…

Sound fun? It sure does to me. I can’t wait to hike and/or bike this park! You can find Easton Tower and the historic Red Mill park along Red Mill Road (off the Paramus Road exit on Route 4) in Paramus. The park closes 1/2 hour after sunset.
