Tenafly’s “Everett-Dunn House” makes its way into the historical record books as the latest home in Tenafly to gain historic landmark status. Built in 1867, the Tenafly Swiss chalet-style home located on Forest Road, was designed by prominent American architect Richard Morris Hunt. Think the name sounds familiar? Richard Morris Hunt is also best known for work on the pedestal of the Statue of Liberty. His resume also includes the Breakers in Newport, Rhode Island as well as the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, North Carolina.
The “Everett-Dunn House” is among (at least) 65 additional Tenafly properties that have already been granted the status of historic landmark. Some of the most noteworthy Tenafly properties with its historic landmark designation include: the Tenafly Railroad Station, Theodore Roosevelt Monument, the Presbyterian Church at Tenafly, Elizabeth Cady Stanton House, Roelof Westervelt House, Demarest-Lyle House, Atwood’s Highwood Park District, and Magnolia Avenue Historic District.
