Notes
Survey number HABS NJ-995
Building/structure dates: 1907 initial construction
Significance: The thirty five acre Burcham farm is the last remaining example of the once numerous working farms created out of reclaimed marshland along the Maurice River. Moreover, the fragile existence of its dikes, sluice gates, and drainage ditches signifies the historical use of landscape and environment to enhance economic stability. It has also been designated as New Jersey "Country Farm," as it has been owned and operated by the same family for more than 100 years.
