History of Countryside
In the beginning was the land and the land belonged to the Indians. The Indians in the northern part of New Jersey where Countryside is located were the Minsi, meaning “People of the Stony Country.” No one can think of Countryside without thinking of the great beauty of the trees and shrubbery. Whether it is springtime and the flowering dogwood making the land breathtakingly beautiful, or autumn and the splendor of color. Those who choose to live in Countryside love its rolling landscape, its lovely brooks and stately oaks. They like its distinguished homes, the people, its tone. Countryside is comprised of Summit, New Providence and Berkeley Heights but all its residents have a Summit mailing address.
