The Tennis Anyone cache is located along the Allamuchy Pond Trail which is located along the grounds of Rutherfurd Hall, one of the last extant large country estates in New Jersey. The actual old tennis courts were located not far from the parking area.
The Rutheruord Hall mansion also had tennis and golf recreation requiring large-scale landscape features. The aerial photo shows the golf course in the field north of the front of the house, with the tennis court among the trees to the southwest of the house. The golf course had three holes, but each hole was played several times at different angles to make up a game.
The Stuyvesant-Rutherfurd series give an in depth history of this important and distinguished american family and the gilded age in NJ. There are two locations showcased in the geotrail. The Stuyvesant Mansion and Rutherfurd Mansion located within Tranquility Farms massive estate was divided by the construction on interstate 80.
