‘HISTORIC’ LIST UPDATE

The Red Bank Historic Inventory would grow to 80 properties with the inclusion of ten new—or actually, old—properties under a proposal to the council by the borough’s Historic Preservations Commission.

Layli White of The Hub has a story today. From her report:

The new additions to the inventory, all private residences, would include: 20 Alston Court, 1 Hilltop Terrace, 15 Hilltop Terrace, 45 North Prospect Ave., 117 Prospect Ave., 35 Rector Place, 62-62B W. Front St., 65 W. Front St. (Trinity Episcopal Church), 32 Shrewsbury Ave. and 47 Wallace St.

Bowden said that 1 Hilltop Terrace was one of the properties worth a special mention because it was a service building for a large, Mediterranean-style estate that once stood nearby.

“The main house had 22 rooms,” said Bowden. “Can you imagine having a party in a house like that?”
