To reach the Van Houten Cemetery, take Franklin Lake Road to Vee Drive, to 108 Delaware Lane. The cemetery is located in a residential neighborhood, between two homes. The cemetery, not visible from the street, comes into view as you go up and around a small driveway.

This multi-generational cemetery is still used today by the descendents of John Van Houten, who left the property in his will. The grounds of the cemetery are well maintained. A metal fence around the property could use some minor repairs. Unfortunately a couple of the obelisk markers have fallen off their bases.

In the August 1992 Cemetery Inventory Booklet, published by the Bergen County Department of Parks, Division of Cultural and Historic Affairs, they listed Andrew Schaaf as a contact person for the cemetery, with an address of 749 High Mountain Road, Franklin Lakes, NJ 07417. The same publication mentions that an inventory of the cemetery was done by John Neafie in 1911.

I visited and surveyed this cemetery in late August, 2002. This is a complete listing of visible internments. I have photographs of most of the stones if anyone wants them.
