#TBT #diginthearchives this was sent in from a fan. Does anyone have any info on Chas. l. Roberts residence? Would guess this is c.1920?

Well someone got the answer. The Orchard Farm c. 1910 was built around 1870 at the corner of Madisonville Road and North Maple Avenue in the Madisonville section of Bernards Township. This was the largest Second Empire style house in Basking Ridge. For 40 years the Charles Roberts family lived there. Mr. Roberts was a prominent banker and the secretary/treasurer of the Childs Restaurant chain.
