Built about 1800 by John Ackerson and son Garret, this stone house stands on land purchased in 1759. The property was developed during a century of family ownership. A general store was built opposite the house site in 1777 and successive generations built a distillery and a woolen mill beside the Pascack Brook. In 1857 the homestead was sold to Levi Gurnee who also operated the general store for forty years.
Sponsored and restored by Russell K. and Wendy Smith ? 1981
