Liberty Hall Museum

1003 Morris Ave
Union, New Jersey

Phone: (908) 527-0400 --

Statement of Purpose:

Liberty Hall is a 23-acre National Historic site built in 1772 by William Livingston, New Jersey's first governor and lived in until 1995 by seven generations of the Livingston/Kean family.

As a result of this continual occupancy by the same family for more than two hundred years, the house, over fifty rooms, is completely furnished with American furniture, furnishings, art, ceramics, textiles, toys, books, portraits and memorabilia.

Every generation of family has left something of themselves behind.  A visit to Liberty Hall feels much more like a visit to a warm, family home than to a museum.

Its story is like a moving picture, portraying a continuum of how life both locally and nationally has evolved from 1772 to the present.  Every era of time is represented and visitors gain a good understanding of the changing social, political, and family values over this time period.

Highlights & Collections:

Fully furnished estate reflecting New Jersey and United States history. Manicured grounds including a formal parterre garden, rose garden and shade garden.  Original documents, portraits, letters, antiques, family memorabilia, etc.
