• Stairway leading from the ground floor to 1st floor features a hand hewn wood rail and a converted 19th hurricane lamp fixture 

  • The wooden door with wooden latch at the bottom of the stairs in the “keeping room” (ie, the dining room in this photo gallery) is an antique door added by former owners Rae and Al Chrone sometime between 1976 and 1996; the Chrone’s were able to close the door from upstairs by pulling an invisible fishing line that was attached to the door below; Chrone family members often played ghost tricks on guests by making the door mysteriously close “by itself”

  • The “cat door” at the top of the stairs leading from the ground floor to the first floor may be the oldest pet-friendly door in the state of New Jersey

  • The “cat door” and the small door at the top of the stairway leading down to the root cellar/wine cellar were both featured in the 1936 Historic American Buildings Survey; these doors were removed by Nelson Dane when he sold The Luke Miller House in 1976 and were installed, after some minor alterations, at his home on the Pine Valley Golf Course in South Jersey; the doors remained there until the early 2000s, when Mr. Dane sold this home (he was nearing the age of 80, living full time in Florida, and didn’t play golf much anymore); the doors were transported to Mr. Dane’s home in Sarasota, Florida, where they remained in storage; when Mr. Dane heard that a new owner bought The Luke Miller House in late 2005, he contacted his son in East Hanover, who in turn contacted a friend in Madison, Mindy Jaslove, a local disc jockey, who stopped by to meet the new owner, David Quirk; Ms. Jaslove provided Nelson Dane’s telephone number along with his request to be contacted so that he could return the doors; Mr. Dane was now in his early 80s and had recently been diagnosed with prostate cancer and indicated he wanted to return the doors to their rightful home; Mr. Quirk arrived home from work one day shortly thereafter and found a huge box at the front door containing the well-packed doors with original hand forged iron hardware; the Pine Valley-era alterations were promptly removed, and the doors and hardware were reinstalled in their original locations in 2007 after a 30-year journey up and down the east coast
