Three generations of the Van Vleck family lived on the property and developed the grounds throughout the past century. The heirs of Howard Van Vleck gave this historic, 6 acre site to the Montclair Foundation in 1993. Van Vleck House & Gardens is operated by the Van Vleck Board of Management, a committee of The Montclair Foundation.
We are thankful for the generous gifts from our many supporters that made
the restoration and improvement of our gardens and facilities possible.
