Long Description:

Really beautiful home, siding (peeling on side), two pair, two over two windows, top and bottom. Really cool porch with wooden balustrades (railing). Has an old country home flavor to it. Porch has a roof supported by columns. Narrow in the front but runs deep to the rear. Overall, this is a very quaint, period home which has withstood the tst of time and the bulldozer, too.

For a more detailed and informed physical description of this site, I have added information from the original nomination form sent to me by John P. Byrne, National Register Database Manager (John_Byrne@nps.gov), Department of the Interior. This narrative was created March 16, 1979, mailed in to Washington, D.C. and evaluated April 18, 1980 and finally approved on July 21, 1982. Thanks to this designation and the efforts of the community to stop developers in the early 70s, Haddonfield is permanently protected and is one of the best example of an intact Colonial America, this Victorian property notwithstanding.

2 story with attic frame dwelling. Small wraparound porch. Turned columns. A small cottage of the late Victorian period. --- National Register of Historic Places Inventory -- Haddonfield Historic District Nomination Form
