VIDEO: Take a Tour of the Landmark Houses on River Road
G.V.H. Berdan House as well as Fair Lawn's oldest surviving home, Peter Garretson House, are both found on River Road
River Road was one of the earliest areas of Fair Lawn developed during Colonial times. The G.V.H. Berdan and Peter Garretson houses—two of the borough's oldest structures—are found here. The original deed on the Garretson House is over 300 years old and at one time included all of present-day Fair Lawn. The Berdan House was built around 1800.
