Daniel Shoemaker Farm, Mountain Road, Wallpack Center, Sussex County, NJ



Significance: The Daniel Shoemaker House is a well-preserved example of a substantial rural dwelling of the early 19th century. The main portion was built, according to a datestone, in 1822. The carpentry has been attributed to John Turn, Sr. A rear kitchen wing with a large cooking fireplace probably antedated the main structure by a few years. Because of the high water level at the site, the structure has a storage room on the main floor, rather than a cellar. Also on the property is a springhouse with 1829 and 1854 datestones.
Unprocessed Field note material exists for this structure: FN-575
Survey number: HABS NJ-820
