• Overview

    The Van Kirk Homestead Museum was once the 1780 residence of the multigenerational Van Kirk family. From 1920-1970s it was a former dairy farm. The house was dedicated in 2007 as a historic Sparta property and in November 2013 the Sparta Historical Society became its owner.


    It is the only historic house and museum in Sussex County with the luxury of having period rooms in the older sections, themed galleries in newer areas and a major changing exhibition gallery. Every year, there are three changing exhibits - spring, summer arts, and fall for visitors to enjoy and return again.


    Open April - December on the 2nd & 4th Sundays from 1 - 4 pm with 2 pm talk.
