Long Description:

This house is 110 years old but you wouldn't know it by looking at it. It is simple and modern-looking. A porch graces the front with a second floor, dormer-like overhang adorns the top. The right side has a very interesting and unique-looking bay window which juts out from the side. Overgrown landscaping block the front.

For a slightly more detailed and informed physical description of this site, I have added the narrative 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 site home to the original residents of that time.

2 1/2 story frame dwelling, built about 1900. Porch across front/ Now covered with striated wood shingles. --- National Register of Historic Places Inventory -- Haddonfield Historic District Nomination Form
