Nathaniel Smith House!

Berkeley Heights' Nathaniel Smith House on Springfield Avenue

It’s BORING HISTORY TIME! (cha cha cha)

The Nathaniel Smith House is one of the two Registered National Historic Places in Berkeley Heights (the Littel-Lord Farmstead is the other one). It was built around 1740, and it sits on Springfield Avenue, which is still a major thoroughfare through the town.

And this is what it looked like in 1899.

DONE! That wasn’t so bad, was it?
