Historic Bordentown Home Facing Sheriff’s Sale

Home of Civil War Era Poet & Artist Thomas Buchanan Read


This is one of my favorite historic buildings in Bordentown’s historic district – at the end of Farnsworth Ave.

I walk by virtually every day, either coming home from the D&R Canal path in the morning or in the evening from a shorter walk in town.

Last week I noticed a Burlington County’s Sheriff’s Sale sign posted on the door – so I presume that a Sheriff’s sale is imminent.

For shame:


I really hope that the building is preserved and not carved up into apartments (or worse).

Ii would be great if some rich history buff could ride to the rescue and cure whatever financial problem led to this tragedy, resolve the owner’s distress, and restore the structure to its historic glory!

I have no idea what the financial situation is and no knowledge of the historic preservation issues, but this seems like just another reason why Wall Street must be regulated and example of why there needs to be a moratorium on foreclosures.
