Washington Township, formally the Township of Washington, is a township in Bergen County, New Jersey, United States. Seven Chimneys is a house with the described seven chimneys, located on Ridgewood Road atop a small hill. George Washington is said to have stayed at the house during the Revolutionary War. Seven Chimneys, the oldest house in the township, is an impressive example of eighteenth-century, regional, domestic architecture and is an important remnant of the community’s early settlement period. The house is listed on the State Register and National Register of Historic Places. On November 3, 1968, the Bergen County Historical Society placed a historic-site marker on the property.
Washington Town Center is a shopping mall located in the center of the township, on Pascack Road. Stores include A&P, Rite Aid, PNC Bank, a Post Office and several restaurants and shops along with a movie theater which offers a variety of theatrical films. The privately held Washington Town Center is the township’s single largest tax payer. Through a quirk in the town’s tax code, the not-for-profit Washington Township Recreation Club remains the township’s second-largest taxpayer.
The Township of Washington offers various sports activities – baseball, softball, football, cheerleading and soccer – which are played at the numerous parks and fields throughout the town. Clark Field includes a little league baseball field with two large dugouts and electronic scoreboard, a basketball court, a playground, sandbox, and a concession stand. The playground has many slides, monkey bars, games, gliders, fire poles, regular swings, baby swings, and a tire swing. Memorial Field is in the center of the township and provides facilities for multiple use: baseball, softball, soccer and youth football. Adjacent to the Washington Elementary School, it also includes a recreation building with concession stand and a covered picnic pavilion.
