Notes:
The house, built in 1870, was re-located to its present location from Sea Bright, New Jersey in 1913. Porches and a third floor were added later. The gardens adhere to the original designs and are maintained by its present owner. A long drive leads past the garage and fruit trees and ends in an oval turn-around by the entrance to the house. A circle of "arbors" are covered with rambler roses. The center of the circle is planted with spring bulbs around a statue of St. Fiacre holding a child. From the front porch, a walkway bordered with pionies leads to the Shrewsbury River.
Persons associated with the property include: William Shippen family (former owners, 1913-1962).
