at East Jersey Old Town Village

The Vanderveer House was built in 1745.  The House was located on the North Branch of the Raritan River, near the present intersection of Routes 205 and 287, in Bedminster Township, Somerset County.

The original section of the house reflects Dutch and English traditions of vernacular construction. It is a simple one and half story clapboard frame dwelling. 

The present room arrangement is designed to reflect the original, mid eighteenth century farmhouse. Most of the original framing still exists, exhibiting techniques of joist and rafter framing common to Dutch architecture. 

When the larger nineteenth century addition was built, the interior of the original part of the house was altered to reflect its new use as a kitchen. The present room arrangement is designed to reflect the original, mid eighteenth century farmhouse.
