Grafton House Outside FallThe Grafton House, once home to the first Sheriff of Mercer County, can accommodate a variety of functions and special gatherings. This historic jewel quietly hides behind the Hamilton Marketplace in rural, southeast Hamilton Township, just minutes from the New Jersey Turnpike, Interstate 195, and State Highway 130.

The Grafton House acquired its name from a historic plantation located near where the home sits today. Years ago, the then 166-acre "Grafton" estate abutted the road that connected the Yardville section of Hamilton Township with Newtown, better known today as Robbinsville. At one time, the farm property was owned by Matthew West, a great-grandson of one of the first settlers of Shrewsbury.

The Grafton House can accommodate 50-55 guests for your event. Caterers are available to accommodate the most discriminating palate!

  • Dogs are permitted on the grounds on a leash (owners are expected to curb pets). However, dogs are not permitted inside the Grafton House unless it is a certified service dog.
