Welcome to Liberty Hall Museum at Kean University, home of New Jersey’s first elected governor and signer of the Constitution, William Livingston. Built in 1772, on the eve of the American Revolution, Liberty Hall has been a silent witness to more than 200 years of American history.Plan to visit Liberty Hall Museum and other customer-reviewed, writer-recommended Union attractions using our Union trip itinerary planner.
Over the last two centuries, the originally designed 14-room Georgian Style home has grown into a 50-room Victorian-style mansion. The site houses extensive collections of antique furniture, ceramics, textiles, toys and tools owned by seven generations of Livingston and Kean families.
Ancestors of the Livingston/Kean families have included Governors, U.S. Congressmen and Senators, business entrepreneurs, and pioneering women with vision and strength. The stories of their lives, passed down from generation to generation, tell how this family met the challenges of a changing nation.

Love the history in this place, from the 1700's to today Interpreted well. Lovely grounds and rose garden. Programs for kids and schools too.
Beautiful property. Great staff. My school age kids loved it.
Nice to visit for a special even like their tea party or their Easter egg hunt. Nice small space that brings you back in time.
This is a great gem of historic awesomeness hidden right here in the Elizabeth area. I've lived here for over 30 years, and it wasn't until recently that I had the opportunity to visit Liberty Hall Museum. I always knew that the house existed and that it held some important historical significance, but I didn't know just how much actually happened there until I took the tour. Do yourself a favor and check it out whenever you get the chance!
