|Object Name||Print, Photographic|
|Title||[Pardoe Farm, Tusculum]|
|Year Range from||1890|
|Year Range to||1897|
A family and dogs in front of Tusculum house, Cherry Hill Road, when it was owned by the Pardoe family. Originally dated "1908?" on the verso, the date has been modified to before 1897, as the photograph appears to show the house before it was "Victorianized" in 1897.
The house was built c. 1773. John Witherspoon, signer of the Declaration of Independence and President of the College of New Jersey (Princeton University), acquired the farm in 1773 and built Tusculum. He rented out the property until 1779, then occupied the house from 1779 until his death in 1794. The barn, shown here in the background to the left of the house, dates to the 18th century.
