Doug and Adele Springsteen moved Bruce and his sister, Ginny, here around 1955. The Springsteens lived on the left side of the duplex for about eight years. It was here that Springsteen saw Presley on The Ed Sullivan Show in 1956. A week later, he rented his first guitar from Freehold Music Center on Main Street.

In 1984, Springsteen did a photo shoot here that included a shot of him leaning next to a tree. It appeared in the Born in the U.S.A. liner notes.
