The Stone House in the early 20th century, with the Foster family posing in front.  Stone House by the Stone House Brook is the oldest datable structure in the Village and perhaps in NJ.  Although the house is believed to have predated 1680 maps, it is significant for the period 1866 to 1916.  This period covers its fifty-year association with the productive career of William Augustus Brewer, Jr., a prominent businessman and Village President from 1875-77.  The house is also significant because it possesses integrity of design, materials, setting, workmanship. Stone House by Stone House Brook is also significant for historic archaeology for the period 1747 to 1850, as having yielded, or may be likely to yield, information for this period in South Orange.  SOHPS prepared and acquired listing on the State and National Registers of Historic Places, and has been the driving force in securing funding for stabilization and future restoration of this important landmark. Model of the Old Stone House commissioned by SOHPS and presented to the Village Trustees on April 9th, 2007.
