1. Naugle family
When I was a growing up in Fair Lawn, NJ. I visited this house with my father every Sunday. My parents were divorced so visiting the Naugle House represented a way of learning about my connections to history in time of conflict. I am delighted to see this website acknowledging this beautiful house and the land on which it stands. This house inspired childhood stories and drawings which I still have today!
