The one-story Wick House was restored to near-original condition in 1934. During the Revolutionary War the house was open to Capt. Joseph Bloomfield (later 4th governor of NJ) who stayed there during the winter of 1776-77.
The kitchen with its large fireplace and wood plank walls. Even during the day, the house is extremely dark inside.
Behind the kitchen are several rooms including this small bedroom with a rope bed, dresser, and chest.
The main room features Henry Wick's writing desk which dates to 1770. At one time two rooms were rented out to an officer and his aides who used them for their office, dining room, and bedrooms.
This very small bed is in the same room as the desk.
The second bedroom also features a rope bed.
A pair of lovely old latches on these interior doors.
The Wick Farm Garden sign.
Wild Marjoram was used for a "cooking seasoning."
One of my all-time favorites--Bee Balm :)
