This house is a private residence.
Please respect the privacy and property of the owners.

This house was built around 1758 by Abraham A. Haring on his 200-acre farm. The smaller kitchen wing was added to the house circa 1812.

Abraham A. Haring served in the Revolutionary War as captain in the Bergen County Militia. British troops captured Haring, and he was imprisoned in New York City. The British occupied New York City for most of the war, and they kept most of their prisoners there. The conditions in these prisons were horrible, and the mortality rate was high. Haring died in prison, probably in 1780. [1]
