Hillsdale in Bergen County, New Jersey — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
About 1756 Peter Westervelt built a small house, enlarged in 1785, on land of his wife Catlyntje Haring. During the Revolutionary War the farm was raided. Later it was owned by son Henry and his son Aaron, a Freeholder and State Assemblyman. Purchased in 1860, he built the addition in Italianate style of the north side of the old house. Alterations were made over the years. A later owner was William W. Livengood, Mayor of Hillsdale in 1930.
