Observe The Van Allen House in Oakland, NJ

I was visiting some relatives in New Jersey this past weekend and while tagging along on some errands noticed an older house that had signage claiming that it was a historical landmark known as the Hendrick Van Allen House. A brief about the house is on the sign below and that will give you a proper insight. I walked around the property without incident and snapped a few photos for you to enjoy. Take a look.

I hope the town can raise the funds that they want to and help restore this historic site and perhaps make this a proper attraction to schools and those interested in our country’s history. The next time I am visiting these relatives I will need to check on what happened to it. Hope you enjoyed this brief presentation.
