The Cornelius Low House is a two-story stone house which is currently the Middlesex County Museum, presenting changing exhibits about state and local history, with related school, outreach, and public programs. The house is listed on the state and National Registers of Historic Places.

The Low House


The Cornelius Low House was built in 1741 as the home of a wealthy merchant of Dutch ancestry. Cornelius Low was a leading citizen of Raritan Landing, a port community on the Raritan River in central New Jersey that flourished between 1720 and 1835.

Cornelius Low Jr. (c. 1700–1777) was the third of fifteen children. His grandfather, Peter Cornellessen Low, left Holland for the American colonies in 1659 and settled near Kingston, New York. Peter's eldest son, Cornelius Low, moved to New York and established himself as a merchant. He married Margareta Van Borsum in 1695. During the 1720s, Cornelius Low, Jr. became a successful merchant in Newark, New Jersey.
