The Mountain Lakes Historic Preservation Committee’s website has an incredible archive of images and early photographs of Mountain Lakes. According to its mission, the Historic Preservation Committee was created to honor the community’s heritage and preserve the “sturdy craftsman homes that were designed for family living in a garden setting.” After all, the HPC asserts that “Throughout the Borough, a harmony of landscape and design creates a strong sense of place. Gently curving streets, the use of native fieldstone, the individualized versions of the ‘comfortable home’ and a planned informality of landscape defined the community that developed between 1910 and 1931. This park-like environment is central to our quality of life.”
What a wonderful treasure!
