BOARD OF EDUCATION - HOBOKEN, NEW JERSEY

FOREWORD
"Welcome To Hoboken - Know Your City" is a curriculum development project which emerged from a school need in our ever changing school population. In essence it is a guide and learning tool for our new pupil residents. As the sub-committee of the Curriculum committee began to draft and develop this booklet, it became apparent that the material it contained would be helpful for our newer staff members and also, to the general public as well. (To meet the changing needs of our Community and to better acquaint our new citizens with their City, this booklet will be printed in Spanish.)
I congratulate our staff who developed these materials in classroom usage these past few years, and in particular to say thanks to the sub-committee for its diligent collation of material, cogitation of context, persistence and perserverance. Their personal visitations to the listed civic areas produced rewarding person-to-person contacts with other dedicated city workers. An avenue of communication was reawakened and it is hoped this can be maintained and expanded,- particularly as it informs and educates our new citizenry.

HISTORY OF HOBOKEN
Early History
Although Hoboken celebrated its 100th Anniversary in 1955) the history of the ground as a place of habitation by white men goes back more than 300 years. Even before 1682, when the first Dutch settler made his home here, the area had been a place where the Indians had been visiting for countless centuries.
Originally this spot on the Hudson was the Indian territory of Hobocan Hockingh, or land of Tobacco Pipe. In 1635 it was bought by the Dutch West Indies Company for $1,040 and was settled by the Dutch of New Amsterdam. The Indians laid waste to the territory in 1643 to avenge a ruthless massacre of their people by the Dutch. Everything was burned except .one building; the first brewery in America built by Aert T. Putten. Peter Stuyvesant bought the land back from the Indians in 1658. Hoboken fared much like other towns in the 18th century until Colonel John Stevens, inventor and financier, bought the whole area for $90,000. In 1804 Stevens laid out "The New City of Hoboken", and auctioned off lots in New York. For the next 35 years it was a pleasure resort for literary and artistic celebrities as well as society.
In 1846 the first game of organized baseball took place on the Elysian Fields when the Hoboken Knickerbocker Giants played against New York.

The first ferries to run between Hoboken and New York were the rough-hewn row boats of the Dutch. By 1811 Stevens started the first regular steam ferry service. By 1824 he was arguing railroad possibilities with skeptical capitalists. They gave in and this time his dream became a reality. Stevens built a locomotive which completed the first run on a circular track in the United States.
The extravagant but imaginative Colonel also conceived of an "academy for the training of the young". And Stevens Institute of Technology opened in 1867 with 21 students and one building.
Hoboken became officially a city in 1855. Industrialists were attracted by the water-front and by easy communication with New York, and the city thrived and grew towards the end of the century.
