Garretson Forge and Farm
Garretson Forge and Farm is an historic site comprised of a pre-revolutionary war sandstone house, a mid- Nineteenth century carriage house and numerous out buildings. The site is a living Dutch farm museum and is listed on the National and New Jersey Register of Historic Places. Due to the amount of archeological artifacts found on site, many believe this was originally a Native American Indian encampment, later serving as the extensive Garretson Family Farmstead.
The restoration work included exterior and interior improvements to the Main House. These improvements included masonry cleaning/repointing, fire system upgrades and interior structural stabilization. Site improvements included new signage, a handicapped accessible parking lot and pathways, and foundation repairs, siding replacement and re-painting at the outbuildings.
