Ho-Ho-Kus, New Jersey

Ho-Ho-Kus is a borough? in Bergen County? , New Jersey? , United
States. As of the 2010 census? , the borough population was 4,078.  [6
]?  [8 ]?  It is the home of several historical landmarks, including
the Ho-Ho-Kus Inn? and The Hermitage? .
Ho-Ho-Kus was incorporated as a borough by an Act of the New Jersey
Legislature? on October 12, 1908, from what had originally been the
borough of Orvil, which was in turn created on March 8, 1905, from
portions of Orvil Township? .  [13 ]?  [14 ]?
Ho-Ho-Kus was 15th highest in New Jersey according to per-capita
income?  as of the 2000 United States Census? .  [15 ]?
In 2011,  New Jersey Monthly?  magazine named Ho-Ho-Kus the best place
to live in the state of New Jersey, citing its affluence, its low crime
rate, and the quality of its school system, as well as its proximity to
New York City? and other major commercial destinations.  [16 ]?  The
magazine also named Ho-Ho-Kus the eighth wealthiest community in New
Jersey overall, with a median household income of $157,656.  [17 ]?

[ edit? ]History of the name
The meaning of the name Ho-Ho-Kus is in dispute. From the official
history on the borough's website, the most likely origin is a
contraction of the Delaware Indian? term "Mah-Ho-Ho-Kus" (or
"Mehokhokus"), meaning "the red cedar."  [18 ]?
Other meanings have been suggested over the years and are listed on the
borough's website, including an Indian word for running water, a cleft
in the rock or under the rock or hollow rock, the word "hohokes",
signifying the whistle of the wind against the bark of trees, the
Chihohokies Indians whose chief lived here, the Dutch Hoog Akers for
"high acorns" or Hoge Aukers, Dutch for "high oaks", the Indian word
hoccus meaning "fox", or woakus, "gray fox", or that the "Ho" part means
joy or spirit, and the rest of the name from "hohokes," meaning a kind
of bark of a tree.  [19 ]?

?

Downtown Ho-Ho-Kus
A constant source of confusion has been the manner in which the
borough's name has been spelled, with each syllable capitalized and
separated by hyphens. The confusion is only exacerbated by the existence
of Hohokus Township? , which comprised the area of present-day
Ho-Ho-Kus and other surrounding communities, yet was spelled without the
multiple capitalization or the hyphens. Ho-Ho-Kus is served by
interchange 168 on the Garden State Parkway? which spells the
municipality as "Hohokus" on its exit signing.
The name "Ho-Ho-Kus" was used explicitly in the resolution requesting a
change of name passed by the Borough Council on October 12, 1908 and
submitted to the Secretary of State of New Jersey? requesting "That
the Borough now known as the Borough of Orvil be hereafter known as the
Borough of Ho-Ho-Kus..."
A few theories have been offered for the hyphens and capitalization. One
is that it was intended to differentiate between the borough and Hohokus
Township, which was formed on April 9, 1849, and continued to exist
until November 7, 1944, when a referendum was passed changing the name
to present-day Mahwah? .  [13 ]?  Another explanation was that it
was meant to avoid confusion by postal clerks with mail being sent to
Hoboken? .
While efforts had been made in the ensuing decades to change the name or
to alter the way in which the name of the borough is spelled, the
borough remains as "Ho-Ho-Kus."  [20 ]?

Ho-Ho-Kus, New Jersey
Ho-Ho-Kus is a borough?? in Bergen County?? , New Jersey?? ,
United
States. As of the 2010 census?? , the borough population was 4,078.
??[6
?? ??[8 ]?? ??It is the home of several historical
landmarks, including
the Ho-Ho-Kus Inn?? and The Hermitage?? . Ho-Ho-Kus was
incorporated as a borough by an Act of the New Jersey Legislature??
on October 12, 1908, from what had originally been the borough of Orvil,
which was in turn created on March 8, 1905, from portions of Orvil
Township?? . ??[13 ]?? ??[14 ] Ho-Ho-Kus was 15th
highest in New Jersey according to per-capita income?? ??as of
the 2000 United States Census?? . ??[15 ] In 2011, ??New

rate, and the quality of its school system, as well as its proximity to
New York City?? and other major commercial destinations. ??[16

[ edit?? ]History of the name
The meaning of the name Ho-Ho-Kus is in dispute. From the official
history on the borough's website, the most likely origin is a
contraction of the Delaware Indian?? term "Mah-Ho-Ho-Kus" (or
"Mehokhokus"), meaning "the red cedar." ??[18 ] Other meanings have
been suggested over the years and are listed on the borough's website,
including an Indian word for running water, a cleft in the rock or under
the rock or hollow rock, the word "hohokes", signifying the whistle of
the wind against the bark of trees, the Chihohokies Indians whose chief
lived here, the Dutch Hoog Akers for "high acorns" or Hoge Aukers, Dutch
for "high oaks", the Indian word hoccus meaning "fox", or woakus, "gray
fox", or that the "Ho" part means joy or spirit, and the rest of the
name from "hohokes," meaning a kind of bark of a tree. ??[19 ]
[ edit?? ]Ho-Ho-Kus versus Hohokus
Downtown Ho-Ho-Kus
A constant source of confusion has been the manner in which the
borough's name has been spelled, with each syllable capitalized and
separated by hyphens. The confusion is only exacerbated by the existence
of Hohokus Township?? , which comprised the area of present-day
Ho-Ho-Kus and other surrounding communities, yet was spelled without the
multiple capitalization or the hyphens. Ho-Ho-Kus is served by
interchange 168 on the Garden State Parkway?? which spells the
municipality as "Hohokus" on its exit signing. The name "Ho-Ho-Kus" was
used explicitly in the resolution requesting a change of name passed by
the Borough Council on October 12, 1908 and submitted to the Secretary
of State of New Jersey?? requesting "That the Borough now known as
the Borough of Orvil be hereafter known as the Borough of Ho-Ho-Kus..."
A few theories have been offered for the hyphens and capitalization. One
is that it was intended to differentiate between the borough and Hohokus
Township, which was formed on April 9, 1849, and continued to exist
until November 7, 1944, when a referendum was passed changing the name
to present-day Mahwah?? . ??[13 ]?? ??Another
explanation was that it was meant to avoid confusion by postal clerks
with mail being sent to Hoboken?? .
While efforts had been made in the ensuing decades to change the name or
to alter the way in which the name of the borough is spelled, the
borough remains as "Ho-Ho-Kus." ??[20 ]

[ edit???? ]History of the name
The meaning of the name Ho-Ho-Kus is in dispute. From the official
history on the borough's website, the most likely origin is a
contraction of the Delaware Indian???? term "Mah-Ho-Ho-Kus" (or
"Mehokhokus"), meaning "the red cedar." ????[18 ] Other meanings
have been suggested over the years and are listed on the borough's
website, including an Indian word for running water, a cleft in the rock
or under the rock or hollow rock, the word "hohokes", signifying the
whistle of the wind against the bark of trees, the Chihohokies Indians
whose chief lived here, the Dutch Hoog Akers for "high acorns" or Hoge

????[19 ] [ edit???? ]Ho-Ho-Kus versus Hohokus
Downtown Ho-Ho-Kus
A constant source of confusion has been the manner in which the
borough's name has been spelled, with each syllable capitalized and
separated by hyphens. The confusion is only exacerbated by the existence
of Hohokus Township???? , which comprised the area of
present-day Ho-Ho-Kus and other surrounding communities, yet was spelled
without the multiple capitalization or the hyphens. Ho-Ho-Kus is served
by interchange 168 on the Garden State Parkway???? which spells
the municipality as "Hohokus" on its exit signing. The name "Ho-Ho-Kus"
was used explicitly in the resolution requesting a change of name passed
by the Borough Council on October 12, 1908 and submitted to the
Secretary of State of New Jersey???? requesting "That the
Borough now known as the Borough of Orvil be hereafter known as the
Borough of Ho-Ho-Kus..." A few theories have been offered for the
hyphens and capitalization. One is that it was intended to differentiate
between the borough and Hohokus Township, which was formed on April 9,
1849, and continued to exist until November 7, 1944, when a referendum
was passed changing the name to present-day Mahwah???? .
????[13 ]???? ????Another explanation was that
it was meant to avoid confusion by postal clerks with mail being sent to
Hoboken???? .
While efforts had been made in the ensuing decades to change the name or
to alter the way in which the name of the borough is spelled, the
borough remains as "Ho-Ho-Kus." ????[20 ]

The meaning of the name Ho-Ho-Kus is in dispute. From the official

contraction of the Delaware Indian??a€????? term
"Mah-Ho-Ho-Kus" (or "Mehokhokus"), meaning "the red cedar."
??a€?????[18 ] Other meanings have been suggested over
the years and are listed on the borough's website, including an Indian
word for running water, a cleft in the rock or under the rock or hollow
rock, the word "hohokes", signifying the whistle of the wind against the
bark of trees, the Chihohokies Indians whose chief lived here, the Dutch
Hoog Akers for "high acorns" or Hoge Aukers, Dutch for "high oaks", the
Indian word hoccus meaning "fox", or woakus, "gray fox", or that the
"Ho" part means joy or spirit, and the rest of the name from "hohokes,"

A constant source of confusion has been the manner in which the
