Robert Livingston Stevens was president of the Camden and Amboy Railroad in the 1830s and 1840s. When the John Bull steam locomotive arrived on the C&A property, it was originally named Stevens in his honor. Although his father is occasionally credited with the invention of the flanged T rail for railways, Robert Stevens at 82 is considered to have been the inventor used in the first all-iron rail construction of the Camden & Amboy.
The estate is currently listed for sale for $16.75M.
