Just Farmhouse, c.1839

1500 River Road

This large 2-story frame and shingle farmhouse retains the handsome lines that distinguished it in the days of the Morris Canal. it is the oldest surviving house from a key era in Teaneck's history, when the fertile land along River Road was dotted with prosperous farms. The picturesque river site retains some of the landscape which distinguished this part of the county for more than two centuries - tall mature trees and fine views of the riverbank. Once one of the most prepossessing of the farmhouses along the river, the building has recently received a radical alteration which removed many of its significant historical features.
