The Mountain Lakes House property was once an open farming field, tucked deep in the wilderness of New Jersey. In the late 1800s, the lake was built by damming the Mountain Brook, and used for ice production before modern refrigeration was available. The property’s first residential owner was a man named Edgar Palmer, who acquired the land in 1929. In 1957 the property was passed down to the Clarke family, who hired a renown Princeton architect, Rolf W. Bauhan, to build the Mountain Lakes House. In the 1980s the property was planned to be redeveloped, until the Friends of Princeton Open Space (FOPOS) decided to purchase and preserve it. Now the home is used as the headquarters of FOPOS, in partnership with the nonprofit Mountain Lakes Holding Corporation. Profits from weddings and other events go towards the FOPOS efforts to preserve and protect natural places in Princeton and throughout New Jersey.
