Established according to the wishes of the late Senator Joseph R. Grundy, this former Grundy residence is dedicated to the memory of his sister, Margaret. Overlooking the Delaware River, the house is an outstanding example of a fine Victorian residence.

The interior of the house is an elegant statement of luxurious living. Woodwork imported from Europe is prominent throughout the house, including the carved oak paneling and staircase of the entrance foyer.

The living room, handsomely accented with cherry wood, features a fireplace with a unique double flue which frames a stained glass window. The large, paneled dining room, a room given a unique character partly because of its unusual angles and arches, contains an Italian carpet designed specially to fit the room, a heavily carved oak table, and a variety of other gorgeous furnishings.

Other rooms throughout the house reveal an impressive collection of antique furnishings and works of art.

The Margaret R. Grundy Library can also be explored.
