National Park Service Passport Cancellations are available at the Abraham Staats House.
Are you an owner of a National Park Service Passport Book and a collector of the various cancellation stamps? At the Abraham Staats House we have four stamps for your collection. The cancellations feature the name of the park along the top and a special designation or event on the bottom. In the middle of the stamp you can get a personalized cancellation with the date of your visit.
“Crossroads of the American Revolution NHA” As a site within this National Heritage Area, we have the three cancellation stamps under this banner.
- One with designation for our state “New Jersey”,
- One with the designation for our historic house “Abraham Staats House c. 1740 SBB NJ: – This denotes that the house was built around 1740 at a location that is within the Borough of South Bound Brook, NJ, and
