The Enclosure Historic District was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1974. Portions of the content on this web page were adapted from a copy of the original nomination document. [‡] .

Around the turn of the 20th century there were more noted artists and writers in Nutley than in any other community in New Jersey, with the possible exception of Montclair.


Many of the artists clustered around an area in Nutley called The Enclosure. James R. Hay, who lived in the John Mason House in Calico Lane, probably can be credited with convincing creative individuals to settle in The Enclosure. Hay dealt with real estate in New York City and was able to tap the enormous resources of the city, including the influx of artistic talent. It was probably not terribly difficult to convince people to reside or work in the area.


The rustic beauty and the quiet setting of The Enclosure was certainly ideal for concentrating artists. The green setting of The Enclosure was much more conducive to creative work than urban New York City. The market, however, was still in New York so most of the artists living or working within The Enclosure also had studios in the city and commuted via the railroad which had a station in Nutley merely two blocks away. The railroad, built around 1885, enabled The Enclosure to develop.
