The architecture of the historic homes of Readington Township reveals the portrait of a hard-working, agricultural community. This is evident as one drives through the rural Readington countryside.

Farmers built their homes to be as sturdy and cost efficient as possible. The houses are not ornate, elaborate or abstract in design by contemporary standards, but do reflect a variety of practical styles.

Houses that started with one original form of architecture sometimes combined features from other architectural periods, creating an architectural melting pot of features in one structure.

Join us for a tour of a sampling of Readington's homes and learn about the architecture of 19th century Hunterdon County.
