New Bridge Landing NJ, Love baseball? Love history? Step back into yesteryear when the Bergen County Historical Society once again hosts an old-time game in the Meadow at Historic New Bridge Landing in River Edge. Featuring the Flemington Neshanocks versus the Enterprise Club of New Bridge!  It is said that the Enterprise Club was the best base ball team in the County in the 1870’s, can they regain that form after a long lay off?

Experience the crack of wood against leather, the cheers and jeers of the crowd, and baseball the way great-grandpa saw it, when these reenactor teams play with 19th century rules, equipment, and uniforms in an open field. A great way for the family to enjoy America’s game and cap of their Fourth of July celebrations!
