Historic Houses of New JerseyThis was the book that launched the historic preservation movement in New Jersey.

Despite the suggestion that this is a book about architecture and preservation, it is, in fact, about families and their homes. The author chose about fifty of New Jersey's most noteworthy houses and studied their owners in depth. He found anecdotes from friends, neighbors and family members that have been well-preserved here - even if the house itself is long gone. Reproductions of the superb illustrations by John Rae may be downloaded within the PDF edition (a sample is available below).

The houses are mostly in the northern half of New Jersey, Burlington and Trenton.

The Digital Edition (Adobe PDF 1.4) is published in portrait orientation; extensive footnotes appear on the pages in which they are referenced; fully-searchable, fully-printable.
