Kuser Farm Mansion in Kuser Farm Park.

Hamilton, Mercer County, New Jersey

22 acres


History:

The Kusers were manufacturers of the Mercer Car.

1892 German craftsmen built the 22-room mansion (a City Historic site). It is furnished in original and period pieces. 17 rooms are open to the public, including a private projection and viewing room. The mansion is set on 22 acres of the original 70-acre Kuser estate.

The basement of the mansion houses the Jersey Valley Model Railroad display.

Surrounding the home are formal gardens, tennis courts, and fountains.

c. 1915 the Kusers helped finance William Fox to start Fox Film Corp., which later became 20th Century Fox.
