It is a hidden gem, we had a very pleasant day walking around looking at the historical sight and surrounding nature. I loved the main house and be sure to spend some time with the barn swallows

This gem is also on The New Jersey Women's Heritage Trail. Go to experience the historic house, grist mill, carriage house, and outbuildings or just go to walk around and enjoy the grounds.

A little out of the way but a perfect spot to spend an afternoon. Tour the house, the gristmill, the barns and carriage houses and imagine how they lived back then.I true hidden gem.

Recently visited during their open house. Very interesting historical homestead nicely tucked away in the woods. It is a great way to experience the life of yester-year.

Oh, so beautiful and relaxing. The mansion is fabulous. The ranger was very informative and helpful, and her narrative placed me back in time. The grounds are gorgeous. Monmouth County Parks should be very proud.

This is a nice quiet, off the beaten path spot in NJ. You'll see interesting historical artifacts and a picturesque mill. It is never croded and the parks employees are quite knowledgeable.

A bucolic retreat from the 21st century. Great place for a picnic and to learn about rural life in the 1800s. The mill is operational on weekends. Sit back on the rocking chairs on the front porch and enjoy the tranquility. Learn about how a...More
