About this Event

In 1760, when lawyer William Livingston was planning to build a country home, he brought 120 acres in what was then sleepy bucolic Elizabethtown, just across the river from his New York home. For the next 12 years, Livingston developed the extensive grounds, gardens, orchards and oversaw the building of a beautiful fourteen room Georgian-style home known as Liberty Hall. William Livingston would go on to become New Jersey’s first elected governor and a signer of the U.S. Constitution.

William Livingston’s niece, Susan (Livingston) [Kean] Niemcewicz purchases the house in 1811 in which it will be become the Kean family household until 1995. The expands from Livingston’s fourteen room colonial home into the exquisite 50-room Victorian mansion you see today. The museum houses extensive collections of furniture, ceramics, textiles, toys and tools owned by seven generations of the Livingston and Kean families.

Liberty Hall Museum at Kean University chronicles more than 250 years of American and New Jersey history through the eyes of one family’s household.
