Mahwah's Farming Heritage

This 19th-century farmhouse with Colonial Revival features was the home of Garret G. Ackerman (b. 1810 - d. 1870) until his accidental death when he was thrown from his horse-drawn wagon on present Fardale Avenue. The west section of the house dates from the early mid-1800s, with subsequent additions. Garret's son, John lived in the house until 1913. John's brother, Garret G., owned a farm and gristmill on Ackerman Pond just southwest of here. Fardale, a section of Mahwah, remained agricultural until the early 20th century. The fieldstone wall was rebuilt in 2006 by the County of Bergen.
