NEW YORK — A wood house that has been a fixture in New Yorkers’ homes for more than a century was recently unearthed by the U.S. Forest Service, according to a report published Wednesday.
The historic home, located on a hill overlooking the Hudson River, has been on the National Register of Historic Places since 1946.
It has been featured in national publications, including The New York Times Magazine, The New Yorker and the New York Sun.
But in the summer of 2019, the historic home in New Jersey, which was once home to many New York City businesses and families, was put up for sale by its owner.
Forest Service spokesman Tom O’Donnell said the property is currently under restoration and will be restored by a New Jersey contractor once the work is complete.
There are many aspects of this home that are unique, but it has been in a lot of people’s homes for many years, O’Brien said.
“The first person to visit this home was the New Jersey governor, and then over the years the owner and the contractor went back and forth and tried to come up with something that would fit the needs of the property and the community and the state,” O’Nell said.
The home is one of about 500 properties on the Hudson that the federal government lists as historic, according the National Registry of Historic Sites.
It is not included in the national listings, so many residents are unaware it was once a house.
In addition to the homes on the hill, the National Park Service listed more than 50 other historic structures in the area, including two historic churches, a home and a home belonging to a family, as well as a farmhouse, a dairy farm, a farm shop, and a cemetery.
Wooden houses were a fixture on the streets of the area from the 1860s to the 1920s, but they were often abandoned or neglected.
They were often built on top of old barns and homes, and often had wooden doors and windows that allowed access to the outdoors.
