Mountain Lakes, NJ Fun Fact

Mountain Lakes, New Jersey is one of the oldest craftsman communities in the United States. The town features clusters of bungalow and chateau homes built by Herbert J. Hapgood as well as the contemporary studio craft style. In 1910 Mountain Lakes was a rural woodland owned by a few families with names such as Righter, Grimes, Ball and Van Duyne. Over the next ten years this rural woodland changed completely; it became a planned suburban community. The town developed a natural and architectural character unlike any other. Overall little has changed since this time and Mountain Lakes still maintains this character intact. It has been regarded as one of the most unique communities in all of America. In 1910 when Hapgood constructed these large estate homes the Arts and Crafts movement was at its summit and the homes often maintained a large yet boxy shape. In 1924 Mountain Lakes was officially incorporated into its own town. The United States Navy’s Underwater Sound Reference Laboratories was located here during World War II. After the war, approximately 70 homes were constructed. Although a number other planned communities in New Jersey have survived such as Llewellyn Park, before it, and Radburn, after it, Mountain Lakes is one of the few towns designed in the 1910 decade that has both survived and grown with its original goals and character intact.
