Dirck Gulick House

While we are all remaining socially distant… Please enjoy a short history of the Gulick House, a stone dwelling built in 1752. Dirck Gulick, one of the area’s original settlers, he purchased the property in 1727. The house is the headquarters of the Van Harlingen Historical Society of Montgomery Township.

The Van Harlingen Historical Society

was founded in 1965 to help preserve the heritage of the Montgomery Township area and to interpret the area’s history through educational programs, publications, and exhibits.   VHHS believes that by educating people about our rich history, we create a stronger sense of community.
