Description 

The Whritenour House is an integral component of the Long Pond Ironworks National Register Historic District. The core of this house may date to as early as ca. 1815. The main plan/form of the house, dating to ca. 1835, represents the occupancy of Matthias Whritenour (1802-90), a local farmer and minister at the Methodist-Episcopal Church at nearby Stonetown. Architecturally, the house is an excellent example of vernacular Greek Revival and later Victorian modes. -- Historic American Buildings Survey (HABS NJ-922)
