Collins-Jones House

Built circa 1785, this house on the corner of Broad and York Streets was home in the early 1800's to former Royal Printer and newspaper publisher Isaac Collins. More recently, it was home to the Jones family, who donated it to the Burlington County Historical Society.

In the mid-1990's, a full-scale restoration of the house and grounds began, funded in part by a matching grant from the New Jersey Historic Trust. The restoration is expected to be completed by 2000.
