This old stone building in the center of Long Valley, New Jersey, goes by many names: the River Building, the Lyman Kice General Store and, simply, the blacksmith shop. It’s an important piece of Washington Township history, as it served as a blacksmith and wagon repair shop, a general store and, later, the center of socialization in the community. The building sits along the south branch of the Raritan River, awaiting a kind-hearted caretaker.

The stone home was built in 1796 and features five bedrooms and six (!!) fireplaces. The property comes with 24 acres of land, a bank barn, a stone springhouse and a small stream. Lots of history and potential here, if the owner is willing to dig in and do good for this time-forgotten property.
