The Matawan Historical Society has undertaken the daunting task of repairing  Burrowes Mansion as the mansion is in dire need of extensive repairs and asking the local community to come out and show their support. The cedar roof that was replaced in 1993 was supposed to last 30 years and  is failing and needs replaced again.  This task is of the utmost importance as the roof protects the mansion and the history that it holds. The exterior facade of the mansion also requires extensive repairs as well as painting. Burrowes Mansion was placed on the National Historic Trust list in 1976.
