The 9.5 acre Harding Township property known as "Glen Alpin" is a landmark,
gateway, scenic, historic and environmental gem, located at the corner of Mount
Kemble Avenue (Route 202) and Tempe Wick Road. Largely open space with
a sweeping lawn shaded by magnificent specimen trees, the property includes a
house that architectural historian Constance Greiff calls one of the finest New
Jersey examples of the Early Gothic Revival style.
The 6 acres of open land that fronts the historic building make this corner
an important visual gateway to the Jockey Hollow Encampment Area of the
Morristown National Historical Park, to Historic Morristown, and to Harding
Township's residential and commercial areas. This is a contributing property in
the Tempe Wick/Washington Corners Historic District, in Mendham and Harding
Townships, which is listed in the state and national registries of historic places.
