This common south Jersey house was built by Ezra Norton, a farmer who lived in the Dias Creek area of Middle Township. It was later owned by his son, Howard, who ran a grocery business out of the lean-to. The house is notable for its unusual winder stair, which begins in the lean-to rather than in the parlor, as was more common in Cape May County.
