Demarest has over 1800 homes in our town and a population of approximately 4800. Our three "houses of worship" are in lovely buildings, and we are proud possessors of six schools; two of them high schools. Our volunteer Fire Department, which has served us since 1894, still stands guard. The Demarest Volunteer Ambulance Squad started in 1961. Its new building was dedicated in 1990 and is located on Wakelee Drive, behind the Post Office. The Demarest Public Library Association was founded in 1964, and is located in the old Methodist Church building on Hardenburgh Avenue. The Peace Site Gazebo, located at the Duck Pond was built in 1986. An ecumenical group of Demarest citizens, who were interested in human concerns and wanted to promote peace in the community and in the world, were instrumental in making the Gazebo a reality. For over 200 years Demarest residents have striven to preserve and protect its beauty. It is truly a wonderful place to live.
