Come and join us, whether as a volunteer, member, board affiliate, or donor.


When Jersey City was just beginning to become an elegant suburb of Manhattan in 1837, the Barrow Mansion was born. Steeped in history from the time before the Civil War, it is now a meeting place that feels like home.


Contributions of your time and money provide the Mansion with the resources to preserve and restore unique historical features for public use such as the bowling alley and billiard room. Your donations help maintain the exquisite historical architectural details of the Mansion such as the ornate marble fireplaces, floor-to-ceiling parlor mirrors, huge mahogany doors, and authentic mid-19th century kitchen.


Lend your time, talent and support to any one of our prospective projects, such as community outreach for the underserved in our richly diverse Jersey City, by contributing to our fundraising initiatives, by creating a version of Dr. Barrow’s rose and boxwood garden, or by gracing the Mansion with your presence at one of our many social events..
