Currently the headquarters of the Morris County Historical Society and a showcase for period room furnishings, this 1853 Italianate-style residence is remarkably preserved example of upper class early-Victorian lifestyle.  A dining room wing, tower and veranda added in 1860 increase the property’s overall elegance.

A 2001 grant helped fund an accessibility study.  An earlier capital preservation grant helped pay for roof construction work and exterior restoration of porches and the dining room bay window.
