Long Description:

Not much to see here. This is a second elevation house and was probably one of the last homes to be built on the block. Four windows in front, geometric, isosceles gable with a two windowed attic. Concrete foundation. House in inharmonious with the historic district but contributes none the less.

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 property notwithstanding. Grove Street represents the late part of construction within Haddonfield, occurring the 1880s and 1890s with some homes built in the 10s and 20s, including this one. This house represents the beginning of the end of the building boom in this old town, especially on this road.
