About

This was the residence of the Governors of Newark during the sieges of the Civil War. A diagonal path from the Governor’s House to the south door of the Parish Church was laid, so the Governor could walk to the church without soiling his feet. The Market Place has retained this original pattern, with the path marked out by metal studs.
