THANK YOU TO EAGLE SCOUT CANDIDATE - JEFFREY WHYTE
Recently, Mountainside's Jeffrey Whyte, of Berkeley Heights Boy Scout Troop 368, raised funds, planned,
cleared property, worked with the sign company and erected the sign and its planting base on
New Providence Road in Mountainside. The gleaming red, gold & white sign marks the site of
the Levi Cory House, Deacon Andrew Hetfield House and Mountainside Public Library.
We think the sign is beautiful and we thank Jeffrey and his helpers for all their hard work!

THE LEVI CORY HOUSE IS IN PLACE!
After two postponements, Mountainside’s historic Levi Cory House (circa 1818
was finally moved on November 2, 2013 and situated on its permanent lot on November
9th. The foundation was built and the 4-foot crawl space is complete. The house was
lowered onto its new foundation on September 5th, 2014. Soil has been backfilled around
the house. Two chimneys were replaced and work has been completed on the new roof.
Fascia and sill repair are in the process. The "modern add-on" bow window has been
removed and cedar siding has been replaced. A staircase has been built inside to access
the crawl space basement. First floor rooms have had walls replaced and are freshly
painted. The exterior has a fresh new paint job. Future plans include interior repairs and
painting, and replacement of exterior porches which were original to the house. Utilities
(water, sewer, gas, electric) need to be brought to the house.
This landmark property on the corner of Mountain Avenue & New Providence Road was sold and will be developed
commercially. The Mountainside Restoration Committee has acquired the historic structure and raised funds to save it
from demolition, but it had to be moved. The Borough of Mountainside allowed the house to be permanently placed
on Borough property on Constitution Plaza.
The house, now relocated to its new home, is a fitting neighbor to the Hetfield House.
WE STILL NEED YOUR SUPPORT! The Committee needs financial and volunteer help to make more history happen.
Contact us immediately and be a part of this very historic move and restoration of this historic structure.
