This is a huge Colonial-Style home from 1740. It is situated on Settler's Pond. There are many Rooms and two nice  dormers atop. It is a one and a half story  dwelling with an attic and crawl Space. Today it is an American Legion  building. This house is composed of brick but has been Clapboarded over. The occupants of the homes over the  years have their names inscribed on the Front of the building, high atop. There appears to have been work added  post 18th century, but it has not diminished the architectural integrity of the dwelling. This is the oldest home in  Westampton, NJ.   In August of 1977 several Veterans residing in Westampton Township met with Retired Army Colonel Curtis S. J. Wilson to discuss the forming of an American  Legion Post in Westampton Township. The need for a community oriented Veteran organization was evident. And to satisfy that need a meeting was planned with a  representative of the Burlington County Executive Committee.  In October of 1977 a meeting was held in Westampton Township at the Villa Di Roma Restaurant to  form a Post. The Memorial American Legion Post 509, Department of New Jersey, on Burlington County Executives and the 17 Veterans present selected the  officers necessary   to start the Post... Thus, the Post was organized. This Post was duly recognized and chartered as Westampton Memorial American Legion Post 509 on November 21, 1977. The final  act of our Post was to elect a Post Commander and a staff of officers for the ensuring year. The following Legionaries have been elected Commander of this Post.  Post 509 has grown from 17 members to 169 its present membership is over 200. The Post has participated in all functions of the American Legion at the National,  Department, County and Community levels. Through the years we have sponsored Easter Egg Hunts at the Holly Hill School, a Little League Baseball Team in  Mount Holly, Safety Essay Contests, and presented awards to the outstanding students of the Westampton Schools System.
