Kenneth Dalzell - Maplewood’s Most Prolific Architect?

September 27, 2009, 1:00 - 4:00 PM

Did he design your house? Come to Durand-Hedden for a last look at this extensive exhibit of work by an architect who built more than 300 houses in Maplewood. New research shows that this nearly forgotten architect designed a vast array of houses in Maplewood between about 1916 and 1960, working for individual clients and developers. Dalzell believed in well-designed, moderately priced homes, often in Colonial, Tudor and Mediterranean styles. He also was the architect for the Maplewood Country Club, the Maplewood "Little" Club, and houses and other buildings in Orange, Millburn, Short Hills, Summit, Essex Fells and Mantoloking.
