Twin Maples is an estate in Summit, Union County, New Jersey, United States, listed on the New Jersey Register of Historic Places and the National Register of Historic Places in 1997.[3] Twin Maples was built in 1908, designed by a well-known New York and Montclair architect, Alfred F. Norris, who designed the home in the neoclassical style with a facade dominated by a full-height porch, supported by classical columns.

Twin Maples was purchased by the Fortnightly Club in 1949 and remains the home of the Fortnightly Club (established 1893), as well as the Summit Junior Fortnightly Club, both 501(c)3 charitable organizations. In 2007, the two clubs joined to renovate historic Twin Maples and opened her doors to area charities for their fundraising events and meetings at suitably low rates.
