Jone's House
Jone's House
Hackensack, NJ

The New Jersey Historical Society's library is home to thousands of photographs that highlight New Jersey's history. This image of the Jone's [sic] House is just one of many images in our collection. On July 14, 1895 a tornado ripped through the Cherry Hill section of Hackensack raising the Jone's [sic] house ten feet off the ground with the family still inside. Seconds later the house was dropped back onto its cellar. However, it was not properly aligned and thus the house toppled over.
