Tusculum (c. 1773) - Cherry Hill Road 

Tusculum was the summer home and farm of John Witherspoon, a signer of the Declaration of Independence and President of the College of New Jersey (now Princeton University). Although its property boundaries do not coincide with those prevailing in Witherspoon's day, they do retain a sense of the agricultural open space that surrounded the house originally. The National Register boundaries are confined to 20 acres surrounding the house. The barn is one of the best examples of early 18th century barns in New Jersey. This district has two buffer zones.
