Matching Grant Awards
Grant Award: $186,969 (1992) Grant Recipient: Monmouth County Park System County: MonmouthMunicipality: Holmdel
Longstreet Farm is an excellent and unusually complete example of a prosperous nineteenth-century farm, typical of the Dutch-settled areas of New Jersey. Surrounded by county parkland, the farmstead consists of a Federal-style farmhouse, a rare surviving Dutch barn, and a highly intact collection of nineteenth-century farm outbuildings. Longstreet Farm is interpreted as a living historical farm.
The Trust grant helped fund restoration of the farm's rare Dutch barn, one of the few remaining in the State, including replacement of the roof with wood shingles, removing and closing all non-historic openings and restoring original windows and doors. The grant also funded an historic structure report which guided the work.
