Inscription. The house and the kitchen wing were built about 1801 by Abraham D. Blauvelt who farmed the land. It came into possession of his niece, Catherine Blauvelt, wife of Richard J. Blauvelt, and remained in the family until 1891. In 1904 Herman Steinhoff, a later owner, established the Rosewood Nursery which was continued by Freidrich and Karl Weiss when they purchased the premises in 1943. The Federal Period house was remodeled over the years.
