• Overview

    The Cornelius Low House/Middlesex County Museum is a Historic National Register home built in 1741 for Cornelius Low, a wealthy merchant of Raritan Landing. The home is one of the best examples of Georgian architecture in New Jersey. The Low House has a dual purpose, to interpret the history of this fine structure, but also to research and mount rotating exhibits about New Jersey history.

    Recent exhibits have included a Centennial display on New Jersey during World War I, and an exhibit on New Jersey Diners. Visit our current exhibit (March 31, 2019 through June 28, 2020) titled: Mid-Century New Jersey: The Garden State in the 1950s.
