Inscription.  In 1826 Gilbert and Phebe Johnson, prominent Ramapo landholders, deeded five acres and a small farmhouse, rear wing of present house, to their son Daniel. He added the two and one-half story east section in 1836. His son, Erastus, completed the house in 1868. Johnsons served in numerous positions in local and State government and continuously occupied the farm until purchased by the Harold T. Sherwood family in 1946.
