Franklin Township Spring House

On one of the most scenic roads in Hunterdon County, there are several spring houses located on opposite ends of the road.

The one shown below rests along the bank of a beautiful property, hidden from view of the road, just east of the historic stone home.  A very scenic location.

There are steps leading to the spring house from the house.

The spring house is roughly 52″ in length, height and width with slate roof.

The spring house is seated in a stone walled enclosure that holds water during heavy rains.   Below is an inside view.  The white line is marked on the photograph to show the water level.

Many of the historic outbuildings like this vintage spring house needed to be reliably functional and still are.
