History
The Deacon Andrew Hetfield House
Circa 1760
Constitution Plaza - Watchung Avenue
Mountainside, New Jersey

The Mountainside Historic Restoration Committee has been entrusted by
the Borough of Mountainside, New Jersey to preserve and maintain the
history and historic value of the Borough.  With this task in mind, the
Committee strives to collect and safeguard information and artifacts related
to the history of the Borough of Mountainside, which was established in
1895.

The Deacon Andrew Hetfield House is the centerpiece and headquarters of
the Mountainside Historic Restoration Committee.  Erected in three phases,
the first 1-1/2 story section of the house was built in 1760, with the center
one-story section added and then a two-story section with an additional
second floor added over the center.  It is believed that the work was
completed by 1830.  Bay windows were added in the 1840's and 1870's.
The house was owned by the Hetfield family and their descendants until
1946.  In addition to the Hetfield residence, the house was used as a tea
room in the 1930's and as an antique store in the 1940's and 1980's.  
Since the house's move in 1985 from Route 22 to its present location, the
house has been owned by the Borough of Mountainside and maintained by
the Mountainside Historic Restoration Committee for use as a museum and
a meeting place for the people of Mountainside.
The Deacon Andrew Hetfield House was registered onto both the New
Jersey Register of Historic Places and the
National Register of Historic Places in 1989.
