Nelden-Roberts Stone House

Photo of Nelden Roberts House

The Nelden-Roberts Stonehouse is a historic stone house that was built in the early 1800s by George Nelden, who settled in Montague Township in 1820. He used the house as a one-room schoolhouse for his children and other children in the community. The house is named after him and the Roberts family, who later owned the farm across the road. The house still has its original wide-wood plank flooring, fireplace, and deep windows and is listed on the New Jersey State Historic Register.

The house is managed by MARCH (Montague Association for the Restoration of Community History) under an agreement with the National Park Service. It is open for summer tours and by appointment. The house is part of the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area. The 70,000-acre park follows 40 miles of the Middle Delaware National Scenic and Recreational River through the Delaware Water Gap.
