Little Ferry was first a part of New Barbados. Little Ferry later was a part of Lodi Township when the Township was formed in 1825. Incorporated in 1894, the Borough was named after the rope-drawn Little Ferry that crossed the Hackensack River between 1659 and 1826. A bridge was built in 1828 connecting Little Ferry and Ridgefield Park via Bergen Turnpike, a toll road. One of the four tollhouses along its route is the present location of Tracey's Restaurant. The Ferry played an important part in the revolution. It was used on November 20, 1776, by a detachment of Washington's troops who were fleeing the advancing British Army. The troops marched up what is now Washington Avenue and Liberty Street, into Hackensack to join the other troops.
