If you are an educator and would like to learn more about the Jacobus Vanderveer House, General Henry Knox, local Revolutionary War history, or early Dutch farming in the eighteenth century, we can help you make history come alive for your students.
School visits are appropriate for students of all ages. Our hands-on children’s room offers toys and furnishings for older pre-school and students through Grade 3. Older elementary students and middle school and high school students can learn more about these topics: Daily life in New Jersey in the late 1700’s; The Revolutionary War and Gen. Henry Knox, George Washington’s artillery commander (later the first Secretary of War in President Washington’s cabinet); Architecture in the late 1700’s (Dutch colonial) and early 1800’s (Federal style addition)
Educators will be provided with a pre-visit booklet and optional learning activities in advance of your visit or it can be downloaded below.
The Jacobus Vanderveer House welcomes visits throughout the year during the day, evenings, and on weekends. Special events and materials can be tailored to your visit.
