Dr. John Taylor lived in this house and practiced medicine here. The Colonial Revival design of the house reflects a reaction against the ostentatious residences of the Victorian era.
The house was purchased by the Town of Boonton in 1921 as a memorial to World War I veterans. It served as the Town Hall until 1965 and is now the home of American Legion Post 124 and the Boonton Historical Society.
