The 1818 Schroeppel homestead, now known as River Edge Mansion, was home to the first school room in the area and is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. The mansion's fascinating history includes the legend of a French princess and its builder George Casper von Schroeppel. This lovely old home has been restored to display its original charm and elegance and many of the original features still exist. The mansion retains its beautiful hardwood floors, wood spindle staircases, interior window shutters, and a cherry ceiling in the dining room. This nearly 200-year-old structure has five marble and stone fireplaces. Pocket doors and a tin ceiling remain as do exquisite hand-carved moldings and cornices. Four beautifully appointed guest rooms furnished with fine antiques and oriental rugs will warm the hearts of the most discerning guest. This gracious bed & breakfast allows you to escape from the ordinary.
