   Constructed in 1892, Tulipwood is a rare surviving example of the Shingle Style in Somerset County. Tulipwood was thought to have been designed by New York architect J. August Lienau for Stephen G. Williams, a New York attorney. In 1920 the property was sold to Leigh W. Kimball, a professor of romance languages at Rutgers University. The Kimball family owned the house until it was purchased by Franklin Township in 2003.  Tulipwood retains it integrity both inside and out. The exterior retains a gambrel roof,  porch with Tuscan columns and six-over-six windows with louvered shutters. The interior retains its wood paneling and exposed beams reminiscent of medieval "old English" design, as well as a fireplace with sophisticated carved mantels. The house is maintained by the Meadows Foundation and open house tours are held the second Sunday of each month.
