Inscription.  Built about 1796 by John H. Banta on a tract bought in 1755 where he had an earlier house. Banta was a carpenter and farmer who enlarged his homestead to 395 acres. At the time of the French and Indian War he served as a captain in the Bergen Militia. His son Jacob, a farmer, inherited the house which remained in the Banta family until 1860. John I. Mabie, a farmer, was the owner from 1861 to 1910. The house was renovated in the years between 1910 – 15.
