The 18,000 square foot mansion built between 1903-1905 is one of the last examples of the architecture of the Country Place Era (1890-1930) in New Jersey. The Tudor-style building with its solid oak doors, ballroom-size drawing-room, marble fireplaces, game room, and bay windows was visited by many of the socially-prominent individuals of the early 20th century. Allamuchy Farms, the 1300-acre estate surrounding the Big House, was renowned for its Holstein cattle, Dorset sheep, and smooth fox terrier kennels known as Warren Kennels. (YouTube video below)
