Allen House Restoration Project


Allen House Restoration Project 2024 - 2026

The Allen House was originally built in 1710 for Judah Allen, and has has seen numerous owners. It's been a private home, a tavern, a doctor's office and pharmacy, a dry goods store, a tea shop, and an antiques store. It's undergone numerous additions, repairs, and renovations. The roof has burned off twice - once in 1914 and again in 1932. Now, the Monmouth County Historical Association is restoring one of the area's oldest surviving structures to ensure the site's survival for another three hundred years. Please consider donating to help save this piece of American history. Your donations will be matched dollar for dollar. Our goal is to reach $500K - thank you in advance for your generosity and dedication to the preservation of our nation's history.  

Project Funding

This major restoration project is estimated at 1.2 million dollars. We're honored to receive major funding from the New Jersey Historic Trust. We're also grateful for the generous sponsors who are helping to raise the necessary matching funds for this major grant:
