Significance: Designed by a Philadelphia architect for his personal use, the Sherborne "Farm" tells us about both the limited nature of farming on the barrier island, and the recreational activities of the wealthy men who journeyed to the shore. The farmhouse was later used as a guesthouse to accommodate wealthy sportgunning enthusiasts. The building's history illustrates how Beach Haven's devlopment was tied to the business, professional, and political elite of Philadelphia, New York, and New Jersey. The "Farm" was also known in the 1910-1920s as the "White House of New Jersey."
