1. Cadmus House Museum Marker
Inscription. Built about 1806 by Jacob Haring and purchased by Thomas Cadmus in 1816. He was a farmer who owned adjacent land and today the house is known by his name. There were many later owners and in the 1920s it became a commercial property. The two-room farmhouse has been altered over the years. In 1985 a group of concerned citizens had the house moved here from the original site on Fair Lawn Avenue. The house is now the official Fair Lawn Museum.
Sponsored by the Cadmus House Trustees, 1997.
