• The office was actually built as a bedroom by Mr. Roy H. Kirch, Sr during the late 1950s or 1960s due to his decreasing ability to make it up and down the stairs in his later years

  • Mr. Kirch was Chairman of the Board of Edwin A. Kirch & Co. of Newark and Hanover; the company manufactures custom blinds, window treatments, and drapery hardware, and is now owned by Newell Rubbermaid Inc.

Pleasant Avenue) and River Road in East Hanover

  • This bedroom (now an office) was the 2nd phase of the 1950s/60s east wing addition
