NYAC: The Secrets of Liberty Hall, Home of New Jersey’s First Governor Webinar
May 28, 2020 1:00 pm 2:30 pm EDT
Join New York Adventure Club as we embark on a virtual exploration of the Liberty Hall Museum; originally built as a 14-room Georgian Style home at the height of the American Revolution, and later expanded into a 50-room Victorian-style mansion, this Kean University museum seeks to highlight the prolific role of the Livingston and Kean families throughout the past 200 years.
Led by Liberty Hall’s top museum educators, Hannah Gaston and Jessica Ivins, our webinar surrounding the Liberty Hall mansion and grounds — which encompasses seven generations of Livingston and Kean ancestors — will include:
- An overview of the historic Liberty Hall property throughout the past three centuries
- A photo journey through many rooms of the 50-room mansion dating back to 1772, with a look inside historic bedrooms, parlors, and the wine cellar
- A discussion around the museum’s extensive collections of antiques including furniture, ceramics, textiles, toys, and tools
- Stories of the ancestors of the Livingston and Kean families, which have included governors, U.S. Congressmen and senators, entrepreneurs, and pioneering women
Stick around afterward for a Q&A with Hannah and Jessica, who will be ready to answer any-and-all questions about Liberty Hall!
