houseListed on the New Jersey and National Registers of Historic Places, the Dr. William Robinson plantation is a rare example of late 17th century frame construction, notable for its chamfered and carved summer beam, rubble stone foundation and massive fireplace foundation in the cellar, steeply pitched roof, crenellated chimney, diamond-paneled casement windows and broad overhanging corner pendants. 
Built circa 1690 on the 700 acre farm of Dr. William Robinson, one of the first known physicians in the area, who emigrated here from Scotland with his family.
A circa 1957 addition on the back contains modern utilities and the house was occupied as a residence until 1973.  There have been a total of five families that occupied the house since 1690.
The township acquired the structure in 1973 and it was restored by the local historical society during 1973 -1980 and opened to the public in 1978
