Inscription. Built about 1836 by John Haring, Jr., the house is an example of Greek Revival architecture and retains many original features. Haringís homestead was on 14½ acres but he also owned adjacent lands which he farmed for decades. Daughter Sarah Elizabeth, wife of Jacob G. Demarest, a merchant, inherited the premises. In 1908 it came into possession of Nellie and Walter Fred and in 1959 it was purchased by the Williams family.
