While dropping mail off at the local inn, the mail stage, and of course the railroad helped early Ramsey residents send and receive mail, it was February 9th, 1855 when the town’s first Federal Post Office was authorized. On March 31st of that year, the first post office opened in the John Y. Dater building with Albert Lydecker as the town’s first postmaster.
While Ramsey was the 21st post office created in Bergen County, the redrawing of the county’s borders and closures since have made Ramsey’s the fifth oldest post office in the county.
This post card shows one of the previous locations of the Ramsey Post Office, now you may recognize it as the same building Morano’s Italian Gourmet Market is in.
