Ramsey in Bergen County, New Jersey — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
David Van Gelder House
Built by David Van Gelder after his marriage in 1794. Located in the area once called “Brabant”, the land was purchased twice – c. 1737 and 1745 – by grandfather Abraham to insure valid title from the proprietors of East New Jersey. It included most of nearby Van Gelderís Pond. Inherited by Davidís son Abraham B. in 1845, he willed it to his sister Pernelphe, a farmer, in 1876. The house remained in the Van Gelder family name until 1884.
