Old Dutch Parsonage:
The Old Dutch Parsonage was the home of the first ministers of the first Dutch Reformed congregation in the Somerville and Raritan area. It is also the ancestral home of the Frelinghuysens. The Parsonage is also associated with the founding of Old Queens College and Seminary (now Rutgers University and The New Brunswick Theological Seminary). Jacob Hardenburgh, the second minister to occupy the Parsonage, was one of the founders of Queens College, and later served as its president.
