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 main house that now graces the Van Vleck grounds was designed and built in 1916

Nonprofit Meetings

Plan to hold your special nonprofit event or meeting at this gracious former estate. Unfortunately, we are not available for private events. Beauty and tranquility abound amid 5.8 acres of landscaped gardens. The main house provides a perfect setting for your important fundraiser, meetings or off-site gatherings. Views of the grounds are spectacular in every season.
