Hackettstown, Warren County, New Jersey
Named in 1787, for Mrs John Rutherfurd who on arriving from New York stepped out of her carriage and remarked with a contented sigh, "this indeed is tranquility". It sat on a 5,000-acre estate and was tripled in size to a mansion of 65-rooms by Rutherfurd Stuyvesant (1843-1909) who filled it with his collection of antiques and notably old armor. The old mansion burned down in 1959.
