Abraham Staats House

17 Van Steuben Lane, South Bound Brook, NJ 08880


The Abraham Staats House is one of the finest surviving eighteenth century buildings from the Dutch Settlement of the Raritan River Valley. For nearly 200 years, the Staats family occupied the homestead which originally began as a two-room structure and was later expanded several times and now includes a fine late, Federal and Greek Revival two story addition. During the American Revolution, the Staats House served as the headquarters for General von Steuben during the Middlebrook Cantonment of 1778-1779. Today the site interprets the history of the Staats family which also includes the story of the settlement of the American colonies, early farming and agriculture, the impact of slavery, the Delaware and Raritan Canal era of transportation, the California Gold Rush, and more.


  • Take a guided tour of the house and property to learn about the Staats family and local history
  • Attend a special event including a reenactment of the Battle of Bound Brook
