Ingleside was the original name of the home built by Henry S. Fleek[1] at 459 Hudson Avenue. The cornerstone for the sprawling 23-room stone mansion [2] was laid on August 13, 1890.[3] The opulence of the home is a reflection of Fleek’s successful wholesale dry goods business, Fleek and Son, which lasted in Newark for 92 years.[4]

The mansion, which still stands at the corner of Hudson Avenue and Elizabeth Street in Newark, includes a four-story open stairwell, nine fireplaces, stained-glass windows, an elevator, Waterford crystal chandeliers, a gazebo, and a two-story carriage house.[5]
