Grover Cleveland Birthplace undergoing restorationPhoto from "The Dawn," a New Jersey WPA publication; September 1936 issue, page 4.
The building was originally constructed in 1832 and many of the rooms portray it as it looked in 1837, the year of Grover Cleveland’s birth. In 1936, laborers for the Works Progress Administration (WPA) restored the building to its original appearance.
