Photo of the Day: Westervelt-Vanderhoef House, Clifton NJ

I saw the Westervelt-Vanderhoef House while visiting Weasel Brook Park in Clifton last weekend. If you think this place looks historic, you’re right—built in 1720, it’s one of the oldest buildings in Passaic County.

It originally belonged to Gilbert Vanderhoef, owner and operator of a flour and gristmill. After moving into the hands of the Westervelt family, the property continued to operate as a gristmill until 1897.

The house, which was restored a few years ago, is now used as a meeting space and houses exhibitions on the history of Clifton, Passaic County, and Weasel Brook Park.
