Maison Pedeflous

      Before aquiring the restaurant from the Pedeflous family, Peter and Josephine lived in a little structure at the far end of the barn on the left of the top picture.

      It is possible that the company in the bottom picture was located in the hotel, as the company used the hotel address.

      Thom remembers following a pipe his grandfather said was from a spring. The pipe entered the restaurant from the front, went under Mountain Boulevard and continued up Watchung Mountain to a spring.

      The hotel building dates from the 1700's and the mushroom farm was thought to be the first in the state of New Jersey.
