The Weehawken Time Machine is the web site of the Township of Weehawken, New Jersey's Historical Commission and is dedicated to preserving and sharing the rich history of our town.

Weehawken is best known as the place where Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr met for their fateful duel, but the town also has a history as a Hudson River port, a major railroad hub, and even a huge amusement park.
