1. Van Voorhees – Quackenbush – Zabriskie House Marker
Inscription. Built in 1824 by Albert Van Voorhees, this Federal home replaced his earlier house. The land, owned by father William since 1720, was called “Wikehoff”. Albert, a veteran of the Revolution and a Justice, deeded the new home to grandson Albert J. Van Voorheis. In 1867 it was purchased by Uriah Quackenbush who willed it to his granddaughter, Grace Quackenbush Zabriskie. She bequeathed the home to the Town of Wyckoff in 1973.
