Inscription.  
Built about 1869 in the late Italianate style of architecture, it was the summer home of Joseph H. Chapman who was a Wall St. insurance agent. In 1868 a group of investors laid out streets and house lots and named the development Ridgewood Park. As it was convenient to the Erie R. R. station, the area attracted commuters who contributed to the growth of Ridgewood. The house exterior has had few changes over the years.
Sponsored by Stuart, Sondra, Bobby and Andrew Pattison, 1993.
 
Erected 1993 by Bergen County Historical Society.
