Save the Date

AIA-NJ Historic Resources Committee Meeting

Thursday, September 6 at 3:00 to 5:00 pm

Water Witch Club Casino, Highlands, NJ

Monmouth Hills was conceived as a planned residential community in the late 19th century.  Built in 1905 in the Colonial Revival style, the shingled clubhouse at the center of Monmouth Hills, known as the Water Witch Club Casino, was added to the NJ and National Registers of Historic Places in 1990. The building was named after a novel of the same name by James Fenimore Cooper, who is known to have visited the Highlands area in the 1830s. The romantic novelist Cooper described the areas as “the most beautiful combination of land and water in America.”
