New Jersey’s Colonial Architecture Told in 100 Buildings, Featuring Author David Veasey

Veasey’s book discusses the substantial number of buildings remaining from our colonial past, inc

luding theRoyal Governor’s Mansion in Perth Amboy, the still functioning Black Horse Inn in Mendham, the meetinghouse style Fairfield Presbyterian Church in Salem County, to Nassau Hall on the grounds of Princeton University, to Washington’s Headquarters in Morristown, to the Sandy Hook Lighthouse, the oldest lighthouse in the country. Buildings from every county in the state are included.

Sandwiched between Philadelphia and New York City, New Jersey often doesn’t get due credit for its contributions to colonial and early American life, including its rich and diverse architectural heritage.
