The Kedge

The Kedge

Sometimes, when I’m out taking pictures, I’ll see a house and say, “man, that place looks kind of historic,” and I’ll photograph it just in case it is.

Most of the time, I never do find out anything about the structure.

But in THIS case, I discovered that this little brown-shingled red-roofed house in Morristown is THE KEDGE!

The Kedge (meaning “a small anchor”) was initially intended as a summer cottage. It was built between 1870 and 1880 by a grandson of George Macculloch; unsurprisingly, it’s about a 2-minute walk from Macculloch Hall. The Macculloch family still owns it and lives in it! (Or, at least, their descendents do.)
