All in the Family

By Linda Tancs

In Little Silver, New Jersey there’s an old house that predates the founding of the United States.  Known as the Parker Homestead, the unassuming white Colonial with green shutters dates to 1725 or so.  Descended from the earliest English settlers in New Jersey, the Parker family retained ownership of the home for over 300 years.  This National Historic Site also boasts a horse barn, livestock barn and wagon barn.  Together with the house, all four structures sit on land acquired by Joseph and Peter Parker under a land grant in 1665.
