James Rose Residence Added to National Register

August 28, 2019

The James C. Rose Residence (1954) was added to the National Register of Historic Places on July 29 after being considered significant under Criteria B and C, a residence and studio of an iconic, Modernist landscape architect and representative of the work of a master. It was modified in the 1960s and 1970s, and currently serves as the James Rose Center for Landscape Architectural Research and Design.

The Center was also recently awarded a Historic Site Management Grant from Preserve New Jersey Historic Preservation Fund. This grant will support plans to restore the property in two phases; stabilization of the current structure, landscape drainage and flood management, as well a reconstruction to make the building compliant with current building codes. Mills+Schnoering Architects, based in Princeton, NJ, will lead the project.
