About Us


The Wallisch Homestead was bequeathed to the West Milford Township, Board of Education and Library to be used for general recreation and education. It is one of the last remaining properties that reflects Northern New Jersey’s agricultural heritage and West Milford’s past.

The Friends of Wallisch Homestead was started in 2013 as a non-profit volunteer organization that seeks to raise public awareness of the historic importance and beauty of the Homestead and its value to our community for future use as a cultural, recreational, and educational center.

We believe the Wallisch Homestead has the potential to offer a wide variety of historic, cultural, and recreational uses for both residents and visitors.
