After more than 150 years, the home at 54 Reservoir Avenue in the Heights section of Jersey City, looks better than it did in its prime. All thanks to decades of stellar maintenance and loving ownership.

During its 156-year life, the home has garnered a bit of history too. As the story goes, one of the architects for the Holland Tunnel lived in the home at one point.
