Revisiting Colonial Days In Ridgewood

History lovers took a trip back in time to the 17th century at the Onderdonk House in Ridgewood last Saturday, Nov. 8, during the Greater Ridgewood Historical Society’s Dutch Colonial Day celebration. The event offered guests a glimpse into the life of settlers who came to New Netherlands (later New York) and what would become Queens County during the 1600s and 1700s. The Onderdonk House, butil in the late 18th century, is recognized as one of the few surviving Dutch American farmhouses in the U.S. Guests enjoyed tours of the house and browsed an exhibit on the Battle of Brooklyn, a key battle in the American Revolution.
