It's hard to imagine retired General H. Norman Schwartzkopf, Jr. sitting up in a tree in the back of this 1815 house, but that's exactly where he was on December 7, 1941, when his sister called out to him that the Japanese had bombed Pearl Harbor. One of the first inductees into the New Jersey Hal of Fame in 2008, the onetime four-star general and hero of "Desert Storm" lived here with another General, his father, H. Norman Schwartzkopf. The elder Schwartzkopf was Superintendent of the New Jersey State Police and nationally known for his police work in the kiddnapping of Charles Lindbergh's son in nearby Hopewell Township.

The Schwartzkopf family owned this home from 1934-1950 but lived here only until the future Commander of Allied Forces in the Persian Gulf War was twelve, which was midway through World War II. IN 1949, MGM used the house and grounds to make "The Happy Years," a movie based on Owen Johnson's book "The Varmint." Cast Members included Dean Stockwell and Leo J.Carroll. Prior to Schwartzkopf family ownership , the house was owned by the Green family for 119 years. Today this Georgian structure, which was constructed of stone from the local quarry, is owned bu the Lawrenceville School
