1. Jacob J. Blauvelt Homestead Marker
Inscription. Jacob J. Blauvelt built the main section of this sand- stone home ca. 1780 on the farm of his father, Johannes J. Blauvelt. The east wing was added soon after. A west unit was replaced by the present frame structure ca. 1830. By the 1806 will of Johannes, Jacob inherited the house and 148 acre northern half of the farm extending to the Hackensack River, the western boundary of the Tappan Patent.
