Inscription. Jacob A. Blauvelt and family, the first of 7 generations of Blauvelts to live on this farm, occupied a log structure nearby early in the 18th century. Jacob's son, Johannes J. Blauvelt, built the sandstone south unit of this home, circa 1755. The large central section was added after the Revolution, and the frame north wing ca. 1862. This 396 acre farm extended west to the Hackensack River.
