Van Vleck House and Gardens

973-744-4752||http://vanvleck.org/

The Van Vleck House & Gardens originated as a 12-acre private estate more than 140 years ago when Joseph Van Vleck Sr and his family moved to Montclair from Brooklyn in 1868.  Like many successful businessmen of the era, Joseph Van Vleck Sr came to the suburbs seeking a refuge from industrial living and brought to Montclair  a grand vision of a country estate surrounded by acres of landscaped grounds.
