Many years ago, I interviewed Mrs. Helen Sutterlin, the young girl in the photo. on her relationship to the earliest years of Kuser Farm. Her father, Herman Mack was the second caretaker of the property, and also the builder of many of the buildings on the property that still exist including the corn crib, the old chicken house and the garages. Mrs. Sutterlin's reminiscences of those years were very interesting. Note that the mansion is seen as it was in its original state before the "wrap around" porch was enclosed. The original railing on the second floor was removed in 1950 when a hurricane knocked down a huge mahogany tree that was located precariously close to the building. When the township took over the property in the 1970's then Mayor Jack Rafferty replicated the railings on the upper level.
