The restoration at The Shipman Mansion focused first on the roof to ensure a watertight structure and now has moved to the interior. The Roof - The roof restoration was a major effort and we are happy to announce that it is DONE! The Shipman Mansion was the recipient of a $12,000 grant from The 1772 Foundation and a Sandy Disaster Relief Grant for Historic Properties from the National Park Service and the New Jersey State Historic Preservation Office, administered by the New Jersey Historic Trust, in the amount of $295,870. We are very grateful for these grants that enabled us to restore the roof and drainage systems. Here are some pictures of our restored roof The Interior – The Shipman Mansion is also very grateful to receive two more grants – one in the amount of $125,875 from the New Jersey Historic Trust and another one in the amount of $15,000 from The 1772 Foundation that are being used to restore the interior and the windows. Attached are some before and after pictures. We hope to have the work completed by April 2019. The Privy – The New Jersey Cultural Trust provided a grant in the amount of $25,000 to restore the historical privy on the property. The privy was described in the application for the National Register of Historic Places for the Red Dragon Canoe Club as a “double-sided, clapboarded outhouse. Capping the little building is a hipped roof. One side has two holes and the other side has three, and each side has its own entrance and window.” Below are some before and after pictures. As part of the grant, there was an archaeological investigation of the privy site.
