Oral Histories and Profiles have been collected over the years through in-person interviews and e-mail questionnaires and recollections developed by the Historic Preservations Committee. This collection helps to document some of the history of Mountain Lakes and highlight those who have contributed to our borough and the lives of its residents. Please click on any of the names in the table below and enjoy their stories.

As we go forward we will be looking to identify others who have made an impact not only on our community but also those who have made notable contributions to society in general. Please check the News section of the home page from time to time for new profiles.

Laker Profiles Live along with the Oral Histories and Profiles project is a collaborative effort of the Historic Preservation Committee (HPC) and the Communication Committee. This project is a continuing effort to document those who have contributed to the borough through their volunteerism, work in the schools, borough offices, town government, or in any other capacities throughout the town.
