The Stone House is a Greek Revival home built in 1849 by Gerard Crane, a farmer, highly successful menagerie owner, Somers Town Supervisor, Director of the Farmers and Drovers Bank, and Founder/Benefactor of the St. Luke’s Episcopal Church. The home is constructed of meticulously cut native stone (gneiss). The same stone was used for the outbuildings, as well as for the stone and iron fence, which separates the yard from the original road. Among its many outstanding interior features are the carved Italian marble mantelpieces, ornate plasterwork and elaborately carved front door. The long, hipped roof wooden barn on the property housed animals from Mr. Crane’s menagerie ventures. In 1985, the Stone House was listed on the National Register of Historic Places.  For more information, visit the Gerard Crane House entry on Wikipedia.
