A Victorian in Gladstone
Gladstone is a combination of two villages: Peapack and Gladstone. Known as the "Twin Boroughs" they share services but have two separate zip codes. There are two postal offices, two railroad stations, but one fire station, one library and one police department.
Gladstone most famously is the home to the United States Equestrian Team and Hamilton Farms Gold Club. Here, horses train for the Olympics and feature the annual U.S. Dressage Festival of Champions- a four day event showcasing horsemanship including driving, show jumping and dressage- hosted every June.
The downtown is picturesque and quaint. Many homes surrounding Liberty Park Pond feature Victorians, charming cottages classic capes and colonials- all displaying well-tended green lawns and lovely flower beds. Concerts, parades and fireworks are featured annually-making a meander through town a must on a sunny weekend.
