Lakeview Mansion (Buckelew House)

Kevin Quidor

The Lakeview Mansion represents New Jersey as an industry and education principal throughout history.  While not dedicated to something specific, the man who made the  house famous was responsible for industrializing a small New Jersey town, a mirror of what was going on in greater New Jersey in the 1800s.

The fact that the house was used as a boarder house for high school students/aspiring college students surprised me. The idea that my town, Jamesburg, was so highly regarded as not only an industrial town, but as a place where hopeful intellectuals came instilled in me a sense of honor for my small town.
