Brookdale Reformed Church and its burial ground are located on the picturesque northeastern edge of Bloomfield's Brookdale Park, near the intersection of Broad Street and Bellevue Avenue, in an area which was known as Stone House Plains during the Colonial and Early American Eras. In 1795 a congregation was established here to meet the needs of long-established local families like the Van Giesens and the Garrabrants, who had previously journeyed to Belleville and Passaic to attend Dutch Reformed Church services. Originally known as the "Stone House Plains Dutch Reformed Church", services were also conducted in English, attracting worshippers of non-Dutch descent. With the passage of time and the changing of geographic place names, the faith community became known as the Brookdale Reformed Church. The churchyard, which can be seen at left in the Barlow photo, includes a Methodist section which dates from the 1820's.
