In 1795 Walter Parcells, a mason, erected this house of local stone on 34 acres of land on what was then known as Closter New Road. Built in the Federal style, it is 1½ stories high with a gambrel style roof. The frame wing was added later and another wing, on the west, no longer stands. By 1860 it was known as the Lone Star Tavern run by Cornelia Parcells Vanderbeck. The house remained in the Parcells family until 1961.
