One of the last farmsteads in Fair Lawn stood on this site. The house built by Henry A. Hopper in 1855 was razed for road improvement in 1989. He was a Sheriff and Freeholder of Bergen County and served in the State Legislature. In 1919 William M. Croucher, Sr., bought the farm and with his sons, Percy, Clarence and William worked the land as a truck farm until 1953.
Sponsored by James R. Croucher, Sr., 1991
