The Doric House

114 Main St.
Flemington, NJ 08822
  • Overview

    The Doric House was built in the Greek Revival style in 1845 by Mahlon Fisher, a country carpenter of ability and taste, as his private residence. He also erected several other Flemington residences in the same style. The fine quality of design was probably Fisher's own, although it is likely that he had available to him Minard LeFevres' architectural plan book of the period.

    The museum house is largely furnished in the Empire style, a design developed in France under Napoleon (1804-1815) with curving lines, some carving and occasionally ornamentation in brass with ivory and gold stencil. The style spread to the United States in the era of the 1820s though the 1840s and complements Greek Revival architecture.

    The Museum is open for tours by appointment.
