The Cornelius Low House stands as one of the finest examples of Georgian Architecture in the state with original Delft tiles in the fireplaces, and one of only two homes that remain from the once-thriving port community of Raritan Landing.

Cornelius Low was a wealthy merchant of Dutch ancestry, who built his family home in 1741. He used the Raritan River to move products in and out of the Raritan Valley. The Low family became deeply divided during the American Revolution – several family members were exiled to England for their Loyalties to the Crown.

The home was a private residence owned by five families after the Lows until Middlesex County acquired the building in 1979.
