Located on historic Pascack Road, the Wortendyke Barn is a small part of what is left of the Wortendyke family farm that was once over 460 acres. This barn represents how the Pascack area used to be used in agricultural farming instead of how it has become suburbanized. After growing up passing this site, I found it very interesting to see how the land was once used. It is also interesting to see just how this little bit of history that was preserved can be used for instructional purposes, as the farm is also a museum in the warmer months. It made me wonder why certain barns and other historical buildings are seen as important enough to restore and preserve, by the community.
