About this event

Calling all Gardeners and Horticulturalists!

Liberty Hall is selling a potted piece of New Jersey history! We partnered with the NJ Department of Forestry to spawn 168 offspring of our famous Horse Chestnut Tree, planted by Susan Livingston in 1770! The conkers from our Horse Chestnut, recognized as a historically significant Heritage Tree by the NJ State Tree Registry, are already growing in the museum's cold frames. For a limited time, patrons of our newly level II accredited Arboretum can purchase a Horse Chestnut seedling, along with step by step instructions for planting & maintenance, and information on the rich history of the tree. Please call (908) 527-0400 or email libertyhall@kean.edu to set up a pick up time. Supplies are limited, so place your orders for this priceless agricultural artifact today!
