Admin/Biographical History The Vreeland House is located on Lakeview Avenue in Leonia. The House was built by Dirck Vreeland, who came here from Holland in 1776, when Leonia was then the English Neighborhood. It is really two houses: a one-room Dutch sandstone cottage built in 1786, attached to that is a Georgian-Federal mansion built in 1815 with front and back verandas. The Vreelands occupied the house until 2000.
