Edo Van Marselis, a fourth-generation resident of the American Colonies and prominent landowner, allegedly built what became known as the Vreeland House in 1760. The house no longer exists, but was originally deemed to become part of Goffle Brook Park. Passaic County planners decided to remove the Vreeland House in 1934 during the height of the Great Depression, however there were no funds to either demolish or maintain it. In 1939, the Vreeland House was again set to be demolished but the community protested enough to halt the work. It is not clear exactly when, but this house was razed anyway.

There is a house on the opposite side of Goffle Road that is commonly called the Vreeland VanDenBerg house. It has historical significance and now houses the offices of the Van Dyk Park Place retirement home.
