Aaron Longstreet House, 80 Main
80 Main Street
Most of Matawan’s 19th-century housing stock was made up of modest two-story clapboard houses like this well-preserved example. Lumber and hardware merchant Aaron Longstreet built this Greek Revival/Italianate dwelling in the 1840’s. Paneled double doors, a tin roof, and terra cotta chimney caps are among its distinguishing early features.
