#24 White Deer Plaza - The realty office was the administration building for the project.In 1988, Frances Smith, General Manager of the Lake Mohawk Country Club, in conjunction with local historian Wayne Mc Cabe, worked to get the Plaza, Country Club, and the buildings placed on the New Jersey and National Register of Historic Places.The district qualified because of its unique architecture, a style which has been called "Lake Mohawk Tudor," a fanciful amalgamation of Tudor, English Cottage, and German Baronial styles, as well as structures in the Vernacular style.Lake Mohawk Tudor buildings employ half timbering, variegated slate roofs, gable roofs, stucco siding, decorative brick and stone work, among other interesting architectural elements. These are also in the Lake Mohawk Tudor architectural style--hip-roofed buildings, displaying flush eaves, stucco siding, variegated slate roofs, and other unusual features.Drive down the district's sloped main entrance of Winona Parkway, off Route 181 in Sparta, to get a glimpse of the lake beyond, and into White Deer Plaza. The building is circa 1930-1935, with a multi-color, variegated slate roof, stucco siding, half timbering, all in the Lake Mohawk Tudor style. The restaurant on the corner has interesting brickwork, while the Plaza Delicatessen sports gable dormers.
