Inscription.  
Stands on land purchased by William P. Christie for 500 pounds for 100 acres. In 1804 he built his home.

In 1836 Samuel Parsels erected the large wing east of the Christie House. In 1860 he sold his property to Charles Newcomb. This example of an early split-level house is listed by the Historic American Buildings Survey, New Jersey, 470.
