MOUNTAINSIDE, NJ – The new Village Shop located in the Mountainside Restoration Committee’s Levi Cory House announces opening hours for March & April, 2020. The Shop will be open on Fridays and Saturdays (and 1 Sunday) on March 13, 14, 27, 28; and April 10, 11, 24 and 25 from 10 am to 3 pm.

The Levi Cory House officially opened to the public in December of 2018. The circa 1818 Levi Cory House which was moved to Constitution Plaza, five years ago, was originally located at the corner of New Providence Road and Mountain Avenue. The house was the location of the first Children’s Country Home, during the 1890s, before expanding to its current location as the Children’s Specialized Hospital. After years of repair, renovation and restoration, the Levi Cory House now opens as a Museum for Children’s Interests and the Village Shop.
The Village Shop serves as a fund raiser for the continued restoration and maintenance of the Levi Cory House and maintenance of the Deacon Andrew Hetfield House. The Shop has been restocked with hundreds of new items for Spring gift-giving, home décor, jewelry, antique and vintage items, furniture pieces and many interesting items and curiosities. All are offered at extremely reasonable prices. Stop by to browse and you may find something that speaks to you! Purchases benefit the Mountainside Restoration Committee.
The Levi Cory House and Deacon Andrew Hetfield House are located at Constitution Plaza (Watchung Ave., off Birch Hill Rd.) adjacent to the Mountainside Library. The Mountainside Restoration Committee is a 501(c)(3) charity and a committee of volunteers whose purpose is to maintain the Deacon Andrew Hetfield House, restore and maintain the Levi Cory House and collect and save historic Mountainside information and items from destruction.
