Whether you visit Macculloch Hall to just tour the grounds with each changing season, or you make an appointment for a guided tour of the residence-turned-museum, this is a must-visit in Morristown.
Originally built in 1810 by George and Louisa Macculloch, it was later expanded significantly to triple its size. The historic gardens are open year round to the public and maintained by volunteers. It also is home to the second-oldest sassafras tree in New Jersey!
Five generations of the family lived here until 1949 when the property was sold to W. Parsons Todd, who later turned the home into a museum. Beyond the art collection and the family archives, it’s also home to a collection of work from political cartoonist Thomas Nast. There are unique pieces in every room, but we especially loved the spice container in the kitchen. So practical, and shows that maybe we don’t need our overcrowded spice drawers!
Visit the Macculloch Hall Museum web site at MaccullochHall.org for news on the property, to schedule an appointment to tour the museum, or to sign up for their newsletter.
