Ever since my daughter Lisa moved to New Jersey, I have wanted to find the home where Martha Stewart spent her childhood. During Dick's and my recent trip there, Lisa kindly helped me accomplish this item on my "bucket list". It turned out that her home, according to MapQuest, is only 5.12 miles away from Lisa's home!
The home is located at 86 Elm Place in the town of Nutley, New Jersey.
To be sure I had the right house, an internet search provided the following information and a photo of the house confirming it. The only detail that had changed is that instead of Elm St., as the address was when Martha lived there, it is now Elm Place.
