This house was built in 1765. From 1792 to 1798, it was the home of the Reverend Andrew Hunter, a Greenwich Tea Burner and an army chaplain in the Revolutionary War. It was also later home to James Lawrence of “Don’t Give Up The Ship! ” fame from the War of 1812.
The Hunter-Lawrence-Jessup House is now used as a museum by the Gloucester Historical Society. The museum has exhibits relating to the history of Gloucester County and Southern New Jersey, including the Revolutionary War era.
