1. The Stone Point Marker
Inscription. As early as 1704 this area of the Tappan Patent was called the “steen” or “Stone” point, later Stony Point. It was commonly known by that name for over 150 years. A grist mill was built here in 1725, fifty years before the American Revolution. For over a century, it ground the grain from the Old Tappan farmland.
In 1857 Nicholas and Claudius Collignon established a large chair factory on this site. Their specialty was the manufacture of folding chairs.
