1898 Victorian Being Demolished


Share post:

This might be the last weekend for the Stonham House, a circa 1898 Queen Anne Victorian that sits on the hill at the corner of Westview Road and Bloomfield Avenue.

No word yet on what will replace it. The lot with the house, 200 Bloomfield Avenue, and an adjoining lot to the east at 176 Bloomfield Avenue went through three years of hearings before Verona zoning officials before they approved a redevelopment plan with a mixed-use building in 2015. The properties, which DMH2 LLC purchased for a combined $375,000 in 2012, were listed for sale in October 2016 for $3.7 million.  DMH2 is still listed as the property owner in state tax records.

Verona’s unofficial historian, Robert Williams, was able to salvage a few things from the home in recent weeks, and had been intending to do a presentation on the house at the April 5 meeting of the Verona Historical Society. This piece in the photo below bears the name of Arthur Stonham, the man who had the house built.
