This house, probably the oldest in Newark, was built by John Plume about 1726, of native sandstone from the neighboring quarries. It witnessed many stirring events of the Revolution and by it passed Washington's army on its retreat from Long Island. Here in 1887 the Rev. Hannibal Goodwin invented the sensitive film, marking a great advance in the art of photography.
