Wallington was incorporated in 1895 from parts of Bergen and Saddle River Townships.

Wallington as described in 1900 [1]

The Borough of Wallington includes all that territory of land lying between the Passaic River, the Short Cut Railroad and the trolley road from Passaic to Hoboken. It was organized in March, 1895.

The officers elected were as follows: Mayor, Jacob Wagner; President of Council, Bernard Koster; Councilmen, Bernard Koster, John Baker, Thomas R. Collins, Walter F. Schmitt, Charles R. Stewart and Robert Engle; Clerk, Conrad Kreger; Assessor, William De Vogel; Collector, Pascal Gardella; President Board of Education, Bernard Koster; Board of Health, Enzo Neer, president.

The cornerstone of the new Public Hall of Wallington was laid on Saturday, November 13, 1987, by appropriate exercises, Mr. A. D. Sullivan acting as Master of Ceremonies. Mr. Sullivan was followed by Assemblyman-elect John M. Bell, Mayor Kister, ex-Mayor Wagner, Councilman James Soop, and others. President Krug of Wallington Hall Association presented Mayor Koster with a handsome silver-plated trowel with which he tapped the stone, saying, "I herewith dedicate this hall to the welfare of the Borough of Wallington."

The children sang "America," and other national melodies, and each received a souvenir.

After the ceremonies, ex-Mayor Wagner entertained the invited guests at his residence, where the festivities were prolonged until a late hour.
