The Barrow Mansion: A Glimpse into the Past

As Halloween drew near, our marketing team, Enrique and I, embarked on a thrilling adventure to capture the essence of the season. Our destination? The iconic Barrow Mansion in Downtown Jersey City. This historic gem, transformed into a versatile event venue, provided the perfect backdrop for our Halloween photoshoot.

The Barrow Mansion: A Glimpse into the Past

Dating back to the 19th century, the Barrow Mansion has a rich history. Built in 1837, it was originally the private residence of Henry Barrow, a wealthy merchant, and his family. The mansion’s architectural style is Victorian, with ornate detailing and unique features such as a third-floor ballroom. The interior of the mansion is equally impressive, with decorative moldings, grand staircases, and elegant chandeliers. Over the years, the Barrow Mansion has served many purposes, including as a school, a community center, and a location for film and TV productions. Its Victorian architecture and lush gardens evoke a sense of timeless charm, making it the ideal location for our spooky endeavor.
