THE LEVI CORY HOUSE IS IN PLACE!
After two postponements, Mountainside’s historic Levi Cory House 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. Future plans include exterior painting, interior repairs and painting,
replacement of the side porch which was original to the house and 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
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.
