This historic house, built in 1897 is listed on both the National and State Register of Historic Places. It is also known as the Knoerzer House.
This house antedates a majority of the stucco homes in the municipality. It was built for Walter and Emilie Greenough who moved to Montclair in 1890 and were associated with the Montclair Art Colony.
The Greenoughs had met in the studio of John LaFarge in New York where they designed stained glass windows for churches in the city and vicinity. The couple pursued their artistic careers in Montclair - Mr. Greenough is a painter & illustrator and Mrs. Greenough as a portrait painter and teacher.
The house contained two separate studios, and the large skylights for his studio have recently been restored. Mr. Greenough died suddenly in 1898. Mrs. Greenough continued her professional work for many years and was able to support her family.
Later, this was the home of Mr. & Mrs. Edgar Stehli. Mrs. Stehli, the artist's daughter, is an authority on the Montclair Art Colony. The late Mr. Stehli was a well-known character actor. His successful career involved the stage, radio, and the early TV shows. This home has remained in the family during all these years. The present owner, Emilie S. Knoerzer, is the Greenough's grand-daughter.
