669. Stupendous

669. Stupendous
Definition: (adj) extremely impressive
Location Placed: Marlpit Hall, Middletown, New Jersey

In rare good fortune, I was able to enjoy a free Friday afternoon and see a couple historic houses in my county. I had previous visited one a few years back and had been meaning to get to others a bit further away. Marlpit Hall was home to a British family who sided with the loyalists. It was very interesting to hear about their homestead as well as how they lived back when America was becoming a country of its own. The home is very well preserved and had some really neat period pieces. I am looking forward to seeing the last county home on my list! Then onto the smaller town owned ones.
