Statement of Significance (as of designation - February 4, 1985):
One of the very few completely documented 19th-century "palaces," this building (1884) vividly evokes a picture of Victorian life of the wealthy. Built for a member of the Ballantine family, whose brewery in Newark was highly successful, all the drawings and specifications by New York architect George Edward Harney survive, providing a remarkably detailed record of design and construction during the Victorian era. The house is now incorporated into the Newark Museum of Art.
