The property, which Governor Livingston originally cultivated, is now an accredited Level II arboretum. The Arboretum at Liberty Hall is home to some of New Jersey’s most historically significant trees, including a Horse Chestnut Tree, planted in 1770 by Livingston’s daughter, Susan, and Bartlett and Seckel Pear trees dating to the 18th century. In addition, the grounds surrounding Liberty Hall still give testimony to the Livingston and Kean families’ love of nature and dedication to historic preservation.
Enjoy some of New Jersey’s oldest and most historic trees along with a vast collection of woody ornamentals by taking a self-guided arboretum tour. Self-guided tours are available Sunday through Saturday (April – October).
Advanced tickets are not required. Tickets can be purchased online or at the museum’s Visitor Center, the Blue House.
