Long Description:

This house has a lot more character and interesting details than its neighbors. The home is huge, three stories with the top floor bearing Victorian style detail. The porch is very nice, the kind to sit on in warm summer months. The structure is divided into two different residences.

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.

3-story brick dwelling, built about 1865. Open porch across front. Windows have been altered but have the stone heads and sills. Window jambs have molded top and base in flat bracket design. Third floor covered with wood shingles. Window treatment is exceptionally interesting, unique in Haddonfield. Doors have same treatment in the brick reveals. --- National Register of Historic Places Inventory -- Haddonfield Historic District Nomination Form
