New Bridge Landing NJ, Love baseball? Love history? Step back into yesteryear when the Bergen County Historical Society hosts an old-time game in the meadow at Historic New Bridge Landing in River Edge. Featuring the Flemington Neshanock verses the Enterprise Club of New Bridge.

Experience the crack of bat, the cheers and jeers of the cranks, and baseball the way great-grandpa saw it, when these two teams play with 19th century rules, equipment, and uniforms in an open field in games that count!  A great way for the family to enjoy America’s game in a beautiful historic setting!

The Flemington Neshanocks and the Enterprise Club of New Bridge will play against each other with 19th century rules and equipment in a double header game.
