WALDWICK, N.J. – After an award-winning effort lasting nearly five years, the Waldwick Museum of Local History has opened, NorthJersey.com reports.

The Hewson Avenue site, which was recognized by the Bergen County Division of Cultural and Historic Preservation Advisory Board in early May, has been restored to its original 1877 beauty, according to northjersey.com.

Doug Cowie, vice president of the Waldwick Community Alliance, said he and his organization worked with government and private parties to secure the funding for the restoration, according to northjersey.com.

Though proud of the result, Cowie told northjersey.com that the Community Alliance was “kicked in the pants” on numerous occasions dating back to the earliest days of the restoration, which began in October 2011.

The May 22 grand opening event featured student musicians and a ribbon-cutting ceremony, according to Cowie.

The Waldwick Museum of Local History can be reached at 201) 873-8919. The museum can also be found on Facebook .
