This house is a fine example of Dutch Colonial architecture. The south wing of the house was built by Roelof Westervelt in 1745. The land had been purchased by his grandfather, in 1695, from the Lord Proprietores of East Jersey. The central section of the house was completed around 1798, and the north wing was added in 1825. Ownership of the house remained in the Westervelt family until 1923. Listed by Historic American Buildings Survey, New Jersey 9.
Sponsored by the Mayor and Council of Tenafly in 1965.
