Formerly a private estate, Van Vleck House & Gardens is owned by The Montclair Foundation. These private gardens are open to the public daily free of charge.


Van Vleck House and Gardens is a nonprofit committed to the historic preservation of its early 20th century house, an exemplar of classical Mediterranean Revival architecture, and its diverse gardens, for the education, cultural enrichment and enjoyment of the community.


Three generations of the Van Vleck family lived on the property and developed the gardens for over 130 years. The gardens showcase a strong representation of ericaceous plants, with unusual cultivars of rhododendrons and azaleas. The main house that now graces the Van Vleck grounds was designed and built in 1916

The Gardens are open to the public from dawn to dusk,
365 days a year, and are always free-of-charge.
