General information
Location Elizabeth, New Jersey
Address 1045 East Jersey Street
Coordinates 40°39′48″N 74°12′32″W / 40.66333°N 74.20889°W / 40.66333; -74.20889

Completed 1682

The Nathaniel Bonnell House, at 1045 East Jersey Street, is the oldest house in Elizabeth. Nathaniel Bonnell, a native of New Haven, Connecticut and a member of Elizabeth's incorporating organization, the Elizabeth Associates, built the house himself sometime before 1682—some think as early as 1670 with the birth of his first child. Bonnell served as a member of the General Assembly of the Province of New Jersey in 1692 and the last official reference to him is as a signer of the 1696 petition for relief against the oppression of the Lords Proprietor.[3][4]
