The Russian House

In 1915, Sam Goldman built a house which showed his ideals via relief images on the side of the home. The primary image is that of a family with a hammer & sickle. The area of Piscataway where it is located was once a Communist Cooperative called Fellowship Farms, which eventually went bankrupt. Many of the local streets still bear the name of communist ideals like International Way & Fellowship Road, although some of the more obvious names such as Karl marx Way have been changed over the years.
