1220 North New Jersey Street
Although basically Queen Anne in its design, with Free Classic influence in the columned porch and other details, this house has a truly eclectic mixture of architectural elements. The steeply pitched open facing gable, with shingled siding, has a delicate swag and garland moulding on the gable and returns. The large round arched second floor window is not, however, common to the Queen Anne or Free Classic styles. It was built by Martha S. Foster. No biographical information is available on her.
From 1912 to 1916, the Goldstein family lived at this address. Samuel J. and Albert S. Goldstein were founders of Goldstein Brothers, a furniture store. Esther Goldstein, mother of the two, was a notable contributor to Jewish charities.
Norman E. Patrick occupied the home beginning in 1920. Patrick was a partner in the law firm Hottel & Patrick. He remained in the home until 1943.
