Inscription.
In 1660, as the last Dutch Director-General of the colony of New Netherland, Stuyvesant was instrumental in the establishment of the Village of Bergen, which was near this site. The Scottish-American sculptor J. Massey Rhind was commissioned to create this statue to mark the 250th anniversary of the village’s founding. The statue was unveiled to the public in 1913. It has been loaned to the Hudson County Community College by the City of Jersey City and was moved to this location in 2014.
