Abstract

Description

In 1884 Architect Frederick C. Withers of New York built the Heppenheimer mansion for John Ward. This Queen Anne building is of Flemish Renaissance style with gables and Palladian windows. The dormer windows facing Jersey Avenue are done in copper with iron around the balconies. In 1892-93, William Christian Heppenheimer, a prominent figure in banking, business, and government in New Jersey and New York, purchased the building. Mr. Heppenheimer, founded the Trust Company of New Jersey in 1899 and the Bergen & Lafayette Trust Company in 1903. Heppenheimer merged the above-mentioned banks with the Carteret Trust Company into the Trust Company of New Jersey in 1913. He became a director of the Colonial Insurance Company, Phoenix Horse Shoe Company, Empire Trust Company of New York, Public Service Corporation of New Jersey, Sweet's Steel Company, and Duryea Manufacturing Company.
