Paramus as described in 1939 
Paramus is an old Dutch farm community still growing vegetables for the city markets. A wide area on both sides of State Route 2 is covered with black much, especially suited to celery growing, giving Paramus the local name of Celery Town. Dutch colonists first settled here in 1666.
