Cornelius Low House

Built in 1741 for a wealthy Dutch merchant of Raritan Landing, the Cornelius Low House is on the National Register of Historic Places.  The home stands as one of the finest examples of Georgian architecture in New Jersey.  The Low House has a dual purpose, to interpret the history of this fine structure, but also to research and mount rotating exhibits about New Jersey history.

Past exhibits have included Down the Shore: The Costal Heritage of New Jersey, New Jersey’s Gilded Age: Opulence, Struggle, & Innovation, Call the Doctor! Call the Nurse!: A History of Medicine in New Jersey 1775-1975, Icons of American Culture: History of New Jersey Diners, Over There, Over Here: New Jersey During WWI.  Visit the current exhibit Mid-Century New Jersey: The Garden State in the 1950s.
