Garret P. Conover House
211 Main Street
The growth of Matawan between 1830-1860 corresponded with the popularity of the Greek Revival style, which adapted ancient Greek prototypes to all kinds of new buildings in the United States. The home of Garret P. Conover, built in 1836, is among the most elegantly designed and well-conserved Greek Revivial residences in Monmouth County. Thehouse is faced with locally-made Flemish bond brick and trimmed with sadstone; Ionic columns flank the doorway.
