Was Kenneth Dalzell Maplewood’s Most Prolific Architect?

February 22, 2009, 1:00 - 4:00 PM

Did he design your house? New research shows that this nearly forgotten architect designed a vast array of houses in Maplewood, working from about 1915 and 1940 for individual clients and developers. Dalzell created well-designed moderately priced homes, often in Colonial, Tudor and Italian Revival styles. He also was the architect for the Maplewood Country Club and residences in Orange, Millburn, Short Hills, Summit, Essex Fells and Mantoloking.
