General Washington stopped near this spot on Musquapsink Brook with his officers and troops on Saturday, October 7, 1780, while on a march from Tappan to Totowa.  This was the site of a grist mill built by Reverend Johannes Bernardus Van Dieren before 1734, and purchased by Isaac Bogert in 1765.  The mill was destroyed by fire in 1910.
