The Ackerson Mead Clark House is a historic mansion in Pequannock, New Jersey listed on the New Jersey State Historic Register.

History[edit]

Located at 183 Mountain Ave in Pequannock, NJ, the Ackerson Mead Clark House is a 21 room Greek Revival mansion built in the mid-1800s.

With a history spanning three centuries, the mansion was only added to the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection's Register of Historic Places by a decision rendered on July 29, 1981. Despite extensive renovation in the early 2000s the front exterior Greek Revival colonnade, original staircase, 1870s fireplaces, and a wide variety of architectural details and moldings remain intact. Originally a plantation style structure located in an agrarian community, the property surrounding the private residence has been reduced to 1.37acres over decades of nearby development.[1]

Currently known as "Willow Manor," the mansion was listed for sale in 2011 at a list price of $1.4 million.[2]

The property is also considered a New Jersey Highlands Region Cultural Resource.[3]
