Jersey City's oldest building, the Newkirk House was erected circa 1690 a few blocks northeast of the nearby Dutch settlement of Bergen Square (1660).

Occupied for two centuries by the Newkirk family, the sandstone structure was sold by descendants in 1889 and moved and altered in 1928 for the widening of Summit Avenue.

The Newkirk House stands as a rare reminder of Jersey City's primordial Dutch heritage.
