Bolmer Farm House
W. Circle Road and Middle Road
Martinsville, NJ 08836

 

This remodeled farm house is the last of the farm houses built by members of the Bolmer family. Settling here before 1799, the Bolmers were the first early Dutch settlers in the fertile Washington Valley. Robert and Marie Bolmer had 12 children all baptized at the Dutch Reformed Church of Raritan. The Bolmers were staunch patriots and all the menfolk served their country in time of war and peace.

The house stands on its original site over looking the Raritan River. The land was once part of an 834 acre plantation that Derrick’s father, Michael, purchased in 1697. Derrick, who was born here in 1699, was a prosperous farmer, respected member of the community, and staunch patriot.

Derrick’s house served as headquarters for Quartermaster Nathanael Greene during the 1778 -1779 Middlebrook Encampment, and units of the Continental Army were encamped on his land. While in residence, General Greene wrote a letter to a friend describing "a pretty little frisk" held in the house, and during the course of the evening, General Washington danced with Mrs. Greene for "upwards of three hours without seting [sic] down".

The park is located between the first and second Watchung Mountains at the geographic center of Somerset County. It consists of Pine and Hemlock forests, open freshwater wetland marshes, impressive rock outcroppings, numerous historic features and a 21-acre reservoir.
