About Hollow Hill Fram
Hollow Hill Farm was built in the early 1900s by Mr. and Mrs. Paul Moore, who had been living on Madison Avenue in Morristown, on the site of what is now Morristown Memorial Hospital. The 52-acre estate faced Canfield Road and was approached by two long driveways. The back of the house looked out over a gently sloping hill descending to Woodland Avenue. During construction, it was discovered that the hill had a sandpit in its center giving it the name “Hollow Hill Farm”. This was a working farm – butter and cheese from the dairy, Guernseys in the fields, chickens, goats, pigs, pheasants, ducks, a vegetable garden, and fruit trees. The main house was constructed of red brick with a massive slate roof. All rooms opened to the gardens and grounds, with prize-winning roses leading to a winding path through leafy shrubs and shady trees to a fish pool and bower. The manor house and property of Hollow Hill Farm are now the Moore Estate, a community of privately-owned residences.
