Built by the colonial proprietors of East Jersey in 1762, with bricks which were brought from England.

Occupied first by Frederick Smyth, Chief Justice of the colony. Then, in 1774, by William Franklin, who was appointed Governor by the Crown.

In 1809 it became a hotel called the Brighton House at which time the south wing was added.

During the Civil War it was patronized by Army and Navy officers of prominence.
