Lydia Arrowsmith House

205 Main Street
Matawan’s mid-19th century houses often employed a variety of decorative wood trim available from local mills such as Phoenix Mills. Built in the 1850’s, this house was owned by Lydia Arrowsmith during the second half of the 19th century. The arched windows and doors, scroll brackets, and trim are characteristic of other Italianate and Victorian Gothic houses found in Matawan.
