Stewart-Capps House – Elizabeth

The Stewart-Capps House is a two-story wood-framed house clad in white stucco, rectangular in plan with hipped roof. A symmetrical composition consisting of recessed end bays, a central pedimented portico, diminutive in scale, and regularly-spaced shuttered windows. Built in 1917 for Graham P. Stewart, assistant cashier at the Farmers & Mechanics National Bank, it was purchased in 1923 by Count Capps, a businessman and developer. The Capps family owned the house until World War II. The Stewart-Capps House is a contributing resource in the Elizabeth Boulevard Historic District (local and national).
