The village of Second River (what today is Belleville and Nutley), included all the land between the Second and Third rivers, or roughly from present day Mill Street in Belleville to Kingsland Road at the Nutley-Clifton border. The Dutch Reform Church at what is now Main Street and Rutgers Street, Belleville, was the spiritual, political and military center of the community. The village rallied about 200 militia men to serve in the new republic's army.
General George Washington's troops marched through what is now known as Nutley... and other regional tales of the American Revolution
