Inscription. The main section and south kitchen of this Dutch sandstone homestead were built c. 1790-1800, the north addition c. 1840, on land earlier owned by David Bogert. The first known occupant was Garret I. Blauvelt. In 1853 the farm was acquired by John S. Norris, a prominant architect and constructor of fine buildings. In 1885 it was purchased by the Burr family who owned it more than half a century.
