Visit Acorn Hall and experience mid-Victorian splendor at its best. The house is furnished primarily with pieces from the Schermerhorn and Crane-Hone families, supplemented with significant objects from other prominent Morris County families. Carpeting, wall covering and decorative paint techniques remain as they were in the nineteenth century.
3:00pm – 4:00pm
Experience Macculloch Hall. Built in 1810, this Federal-style mansion of more than twenty rooms was home to George Macculloch (best remembered as the Father of the Morris Canal) and five generations of his descendants. The museum features a collection of 18th and 19th century decorative and fine arts and is home to the largest collection of works by political cartoonist Thomas Nast. End your afternoon with a stroll behind Macculloch Hall through the oldest gardens in Morris County.
