Notes:
Glen Alpin is located on the outskirts of Morristown in Harding Township. This "Morristown" property was located in what was then Passaic Township, which became part of Harding Township. Some of the garden structures--pergola and tea houses--still exist. These structures are no longer on the same lot as the house (after a subdivision in the 1970s). The Glen Alpin Conservancy was formed to work collaboratively with township leaders and the Harding Land Trust to oversee the management of the property. The Conservancy plans to restore the house and open it to the public.
Person(s) associated with the property include: David H. McAlpin Sr. (former owner,1885-1901); Charles W. McAlpin (former owner, 1901-1940); Daniel W. Langton (landscape architect, ca. 1907); Doris Mercer (former owner, 1940-?); and Township of Harding (present owners).
