WALDWICK, N.J. -- Two of the 12 historic preservation awards to be awarded on May 5 will be given to the Waldwick Community Alliance and the Waldwick Historical society, for their work on the Waldwick Train Station and Harvey Springstead Signal Tower, the Waldwick Suburban News reported.
Doug Cowie, VP of the Waldwick Community Alliance, which restored the train station, said that the decade-long process has sometimes been difficult, the Waldwick Suburban News reported. "I never intended to go into life to restore a building or to develop a museum. It’s sort of something that found me."

The 2016 Awards are hosted by the Bergen County Division of Cultural and Historic Affairs and Historic Preservation Advisory Board.
