62 Longstreet RaodHolmdel, N.J.
Local Dutch vernacular building traditions are illustrated in the house begun about 1754 by William Holmes, who was of Dutch and English descent. Only the symmetrical facade and a few interior details reflect mainstream Georgian architecture while the interior floor plan is made in the Dutch tradition. Fine examples of mid-18th century furnishings complement the remarkably preserved building. Every spring, in conjunction with neighboring Longstreet Farm’s sheep shearing, spinning and weaving demonstrations are offered at Homles-Hendrickson House.
