Laura Hedley was born in 1963 in Montclair, New Jersey.  Ms. Hedley's grandparents, Catherine and Frederick Ingram, worked as staff for the Muñoz family, who owned Kip's Castle from 1926 to 1975, along with another property on Highland Avenue.  From 1945 to 1971, Catherine Ingram worked as a private duty nurse for the Muñoz family, and Fred worked as a caretaker of the grounds.  They lived in Kip's Castle with their children, Nancy Ingram Nash, who is Laura Hedley's mother, and Fred Ingram, who eventually took over as groundskeeper for Kip's Castle. 

Growing up in Montclair, Ms. Hedley spent time at Kip's Castle with her grandparents.  Ms. Hedley attended Montclair State and lived in Toms River, until relocating to Maryland.  In the interview, Ms. Hedley discusses her recollections of her family members and time spent at Kip's Castle.

This interview was made possible in part through a grant ROHA received from the New Jersey Council for the Humanities.
