Atlantic Highlands Historical Society
Built in 1893 by wealthy New York merchant Adolph Strauss, the Strauss Mansion is a 21-room Victorian era Queen Anne-style “cottage” erected on the Atlantic Highlands hillside. Stunning views of New York City, the harbor, and Sandy Hook, can be seen from the third floor Tower Room. The museum is now open for free self-guided tours every Sunday from 12 - 4 PM, April through November. Exhibits include Victorian-era period displays, a room dedicated to the history of the Lenni Lenape, collections of local history items, and a vast newspaper archives and library. Suggested donation is $5 per person.
