"Vrooming" Through the Years
The Archibald-Vroom House started off as a house, then was sold to Peter J. Hopper in the 1830's. Hopper started Ridgewood Avenue's first retail store. Since then, it has housed many different places, such as Marcus Jewelers and a Verizon store. Currently, it is the Tea Tree Spa, as shown in the picture. No matter what is sold within the walls of the Archibald-Vroom house, its historic significance will never be eliminated. Even the stones on the walls are a constant reminder to everyone walking through the village of the rich history that Ridgewood really has.
