Also see . . . Abraham Van Horne. About 1750 Abraham Van Horne built the first tavern in the area. It was on the road from Clinton to Somerville where it crossed Rockaway Creek (now route 22). Because the building had white plastered walls it became known as the "White House". ... Stones from the tavern's foundation are said to be in the retaining wall about the old cemetery located not too far from the tavern's original site.
