Located at the corner of Academy and North Stockton Streets, this charming three-story brick home was built in 1886. Historic images from the 1920s also show the first floor as a storefront - possibly office space for a local business, though its exact use is unclear.

 

Trenton's historic city directories from the 1920s (courtesy of Trenton Historical Society) suggest the home was once divided into units as a boarding house, used by various visitors of Trenton and workers of the Pennsylvania Railroad as a place to rest as they passed through New Jersey.

 

For more than a decade, 59 North Stockton sat vacant and neglected. In 2013, it was rehabbed by Isles, complete with new energy efficient appliances and bamboo flooring. It is now a single-family, owner-occupied home.
