Jackson House – Elizabeth

The Jackson House is a two-story gabled Georgian Revival house, symmetrically composed with regularly-spaced double-hung windows and a delicate central portico, gabled and supported by clusters of slender Tuscan columns. The roof has wide eaves and eave returns. Flush chimneys project at the peak of each side elevation. Of wood-framed construction, the house is clad in brick, originally of a buff color, now painted white. A sun-room off the east wall has a second-story addition. Mrs. Eva B. Jackson, widow of George Jackson, purchased the lot in October, 1915, and had the house built soon after. She resided here through the early 1930s. The Jackson House is a contributing resource in the Elizabeth Boulevard Historic District (local and national).
