Long Description:

The structure has the appearance of two houses smushed together to form one huge monstrosity. The house features nine 8 over 8 windows. The house is otherwise unremarkable except for the massive roof. Huge lawn out front as the house is pushed back form the street and parking for thirty to the rear

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 90 year old property notwithstanding.

2 story frame American colonial style structure, built for offices but designed to have residential appearance to harmonize with streetscape. Rear extensions designed in barn effect. Sits far back from street, well landscape. --- National Register of Historic Places Inventory -- Haddonfield Historic District Nomination Form
