The Robinson Plantation House is a historic house in Clark, New Jersey built around 1690 on territory that was part of the Elizabethtown Tract, and was once part of Rahway. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1974 as Seventeenth Century Clark House. The 17th century frame house is characterized by its rubble stone foundation and massive fireplace foundation in the cellar, chamfered and carved summer beam, steeply pitched roof, crenellated chimney, diamond-paneled casement windows and broad overhanging corner pendants. A circa 1957 addition on the back contains modern utilities and the house was occupied as a residence until 1973, after which it became the Dr. Wm. Robinson Plantation & Museum.
The Squire Hartshorne House is another home from the 17th century located in Clark.
