CIRCA 1720 -- excellent example of Shaker Style keeping the overwhelming original infrastructure intact and a very rare treat for historical enthusiasts. Original portion believed built around 1720 with additions in 1740 & 1760. According to local folklore this was one of the original ~Toll Houses~ in New Jersey. Travelers would stop to pay the toll for the main road traveling between Philadelphia and New York. Strictly offered AS-IS cash only and the home does need work. 501 Province Line Rd. is part of a Hamlet on the National Registry, Arneytown Historic District (ID 854) filed with the Library of Congress, situated on ~ acre with mature landscaping, very large rear yard complete with outhouse.
