The Barrow Mansion is a Greek Revival-style building (1837) located in the Van Vorst Historic District of Jersey City, New Jersey. Initially constructed as a private residence, the building has been in public use since 1890, when the Mansion served briefly as the Jersey City YMCA. The billiard room, bowling alley and gym (now theater) were added by the YMCA. The property was purchased by St. Matthew’s Evangelical Lutheran Church in 1897. The Barrow Mansion is on the State and National Registers of Historic Places and hosts a variety of community-oriented events each week. Read more online: barrowmansion.org
The Barrow Mansion Development Corporation was founded in 1985 as steward with the purpose of restoration, preservation, and operations and promoting the Mansion use as a community center. The BMDC is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit.
