Long Description:

Gorgeous Victorian which seems to have been expanded over the years, but kept in true Victorian spirit. Bay windows jut out on the sides and mini dormers pop out all over the mansard roof. The house has front and left side entrances, is second elevation. There are countless windows, two over two in true Victorian fashion. House serves commercial purposes today and is just a wonderful show piece for this street.

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.

Handsome, large square Victorian dwelling, built in 1876. Mansard roof, curved dormer heads, original windows of period, 2 over 2 sash. Fine front entrance portico with much Victorian trim, typical gingerbread cutout corners on posts, recently restored from pictures of original. Side bays and side Victorian porches. Recently adapted for offices and put in good condition. Some reconditioning but an excellent, large original structure. --- National Register of Historic Places Inventory -- Haddonfield Historic District Nomination Form
