National Register of Historic Places
Rutherfurd Hall, built in 1903, is a National and NJ State Historic Landmark. A sprawling country home, the hall was designed as a grand country manor by famed architect Whitney Warren, who also designed such landmarks as New York's Grand Central Station and the New York Yacht Club. The Tudor and Jacobean influenced main house was built for Winthrop Rutherfurd (1862-1944) who was the son of Lewis Morris Rutherfurd (1816-1892) and Margaret Chanler Stuyvesant (1820-1890) a descendant of Peter Gerard Stuyvesant. The home remained in the family and was used as a seasonal retreat and residence until the death of Lucy Mercer Rutherfurd in 1949 when it was bequeathed to the Congregation of the Daughters of Divine Charity. The sisters added a functional residential wing in 1959, which is now known as the Mountain Villa School.
