Van Brunt Homestead
John Van Brunt Homestead
|Location||Englewood, New Jersey|
|Architect||Peter Westervelt, Jr.|
The John Van Brunt Homestead no longer exists, but it was built in 1834 by Peter Westervelt, Jr. for his daughter Margaret, who married John Van Brunt.  In its day, it was the showplace of the town. As there were no hotels, visitors to Englewood would stay here and at the Dominie Demarest farm. J. Wyman Jones spent the Summer of 1859 here while he plotted the future of the town.
