2018 IS AN IMPORTANT ANNIVERSARY

Adolph and Jeanette Strauss built the Strauss Mansion 125 years ago. 
We are working on an exciting year of events which will celebrate the history of Atlantic Highlands with themes specific to the era of the home and of our area. Stay tuned! Below are some images showing what the house looked like in the earlier days and when the Board of the Museum took on the project to save the mansion.
