Evergreens

 

During the holiday season, several historic homes in Montclair are open to the public for holiday tours. One of them is Charles Shultz House, also known as Evergreens.

 

According to the Montclair Historical Society website:

Charles Shultz House Charles S. Shultz (1839-1924), a President of the Hoboken Bank for Savings, and Lucy M. Budd (1844-1905), built the house on 30 North Mountain Avenue in 1896. It is a three-story Victorian residence with twenty-one rooms. The house remained in the family for three generations until it was donated to the Montclair Historical Society by Molly Shultz, also a member, in 1997. The house is notable for its architectural design, its picturesque landscape, its eclectic furnishings, and most importantly, for its virtually untouched state of preservation. Today, the Charles Shultz House, also known as the Evergreens, is part of The Montclair Historical Society’s collection of historic houses. It has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places since 1979.
