Located in old "Polifly", George Brinkerhoff built this house about 1792 on a 200 acre farm he purchased in 1784. Owned in 1806 by son Henry G. and in 1849 by his son, Enoch, a N.J. Assemblyman. In the 1870's, great-grandson Henry E. remodeled the house. He later became a founding councilman of the Borough of Wood-Ridge. Purchased in 1905 by Leopold Brandenburg, Mayor in 1918-19. The house was renovated as the town memorial library in 1954.
