• Somers Mansion Restoration - Somers Point NJ
    The oldest intact house in Atlantic County, the Somers Mansion dates to the 1720s and was "continuously occupied by the Somers family for over 200 years. In 1937, Somers family descendants deeded it to the Atlantic County Historical Society. New Jersey took ownership of the Somers Mansion in 1941, and began an extensive restoration" through the Works Progress Administration (WPA). Laborers for the WPA both renovated the extant furnishings and conducted historical restoration, including the elimination of rooms dating to the Victorian era. (ettc.net)
