The Isaac Pearson House is on the National and NJ Registers of Historic Places and was the home of a New Jersey official that was a prominent figure during the Revolutionary War. Built in 1773 and located in the Decou neighborhood of Hamilton – was the home of its namesake, who was the Nottingham Tax Collector, a justice or the peace, a freeholder, township clerk and an NJ Provincial Congress delegate. He was an interesting American Revolutionary figure whose political persuasions and murder at the hands of the Continental Army still pose unanswered questions for local historians.

Constructed in 1773, the Isaac Pearson House has both local and architectural significance. The house was built in the Georgian style with its emphasis on symmetry both of the interior and exterior. Both the building materials and size of the house were meant to express Pearson’s wealth and status in the community. The house stayed in the Pearson family for nearly a century after Isaac Pearson’s death in 1776.
