Inscription.  Located in “Small Lots”, Henry G. Hopper began the construction of this house about 1788 on a 120 acre farm. Son Garret erected the Dutch-style main house in the early 1800’s. The north frame wing was built in the 1850’s for his son Thomas who inherited the homestead in 1872. His son, Garret T., was a Glen Rock founder and councilman. He sold the house in 1897 after more than a century of family ownership.
