    What an intriguing property. The low quality of the photography actually lends it a romantic, interesting air, don’t you think? Really cool.

    Titusville developed around the Delaware & Raritan Canal and the “river lots” laid out by Uriel Titus after 1830. It’s possible this house predates that although it isn’t noted in the Titusville Historic District info.
    This is a desirable area near Princeton and Trenton, and full of history – Washington’s famous crossing of the Delaware on Christmas 1776 was just south. There’s a lot to work with here. The riverfront lot across the street is included, and an old fashioned gazebo would be a nice addition.

    This is another of the rare intact survivals, meaning historically intact. Less so its ceilings. It begs for someone with a strong preservation bent who can respire a few oz. of lead over time without suffering more than, say, 50 percent diminished mental capacity, still enough to maintain an admirable preservation ethic. I would take it on myself but I have done enough of these already that my own interior plumbing, so supple and resilient in youth, is now lead-lined and my microprocessor hovers at about 5 percent of original speed and efficiency. Too late to chelate for this old boy.
