The earliest part of this house, one of the oldest in the county, was built on land purchased in 1677 by David Demarest, Sr., founder of the Huguenot Colony in Bergen County. His grandson Jacobus, born 1681, lived here until his death in 1763. Jacobus' son John completed the house in 1765. It remained in the family until 1850. An architectural feature surviving from its early days is its unbroken gambrel roof.
