The John Rogers House, built in 1761, is a historic home believed to be the oldest existing structure in West Windsor Township, New Jersey. The building was added to the National Register of Historic Places on January 31, 1978.[2]

The home has been listed by Preservation New Jersey on its list of endangered historic sites, as the local and county historical societies disagree about the preservation of the building.[3] The structure was deeded to Mercer County in 1970 when the lands around the house became Mercer County Park. There are tarps over the roof to protect it from weather.[4]
