About the event

Join Preservation NJ via Zoom on May 16 at 7PM as we sit down with the Friends of the Van Ness House. The Van Ness House was built by one of the earliest Dutch families to settle in western Essex County. Simon Van Ness brought his family to Fairfield in 1701 to claim the ownership of this land, and was one of the founders of the Reformed Church of Fairfield in 1720. The house was likely built circa 1760, but may incorporate earlier construction features.

This event is an installment of our series, "Talks with Our Ten Most," where we share updates -- and lessons learned -- from past PNJ Ten Most Endangered Sites. The Van Ness House was listed in 2019. Free and open to all.
