As early as 1704 this area of the Tappan Patent was called the "steen" or "Stone" point, later Stony Point. It was commonly known by that name for over 150 years. A grist mill was built here in 1725, fifty years before the American Revolution. For over a century, it ground the grain from the Old Tappan farmland.
In 1857 Nicholas and Claudius Collignon established a large chair factory on this site. Their specialty was the manufacture of folding chairs.
