Pale white dominates the Piazza of Ringwood Manor, NJ. It is a room that defies description, unless you see the beauty of it with your own eyes. Light streams in from all sides, and it offers a wide view of the beautiful gardens. Olde worlde style comes to mind.

The existing mansion was started in 1807 by the Ryersons and added to by the Hewitts for a period of over 100 years. Thus, the present Ringwood Manor displays architecture from the Federal through the Victorian and Edwardian periods. Each addition is interesting and significant.

The other important factor about Ringwood Manor is that it was left by the Hewitt family as it was: it has their furniture, their books, their clothing. It shows how this family lived during the 19th and 20th centuries.
This piazza was built by Miss Sally and Miss Nellie Hewitt in 1910. They recycled windows from the Cooper Union Institute in Manhattan, which was undergoing renovation at the time.
