Visitors to the Abraham Staats House can read (and hear) about the Staats farming enterprise through the centuries
Welcome to the Staats’ farmstead. The six-acres you are standing on once grew crops and supported livestock for the Staats – a Dutch family who built their first house here and began farming this land about 1740. The Staats and their descendants lived here for nearly two hundred years before the home and remaining property was sold out of the family to other private owners. Today, the house and grounds are owned by the Borough of South Bound Brook, and operated as a house museum.
