Merchant Cornelius Low’s Raritan Landing home

9_24_13_Cornelious Low House High Quality012

Merchant Cornelius Low’s Raritan Landing home was spared by the British due to his loyalty to King George III.

The Cornelius Low House/Middlesex County Museum is a historic national register home built in 1741 for Cornelius Low, a wealthy merchant of Raritan Landing. The home is one of the best 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.

Recent exhibits have included a Centennial display on New Jersey during World War I, and an exhibit on New Jersey Diners.
