Liberty Hall Museum, Union

(4.4/5 based on 45+ reviews on the web)
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.

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.

Visit Liberty Hall Museum and discover the living past.

  • Liberty Hall Museum is an old House of epoch on the East Coast. There's not much to see but if one this pass is worthwhile take a little walk and approach to the history of New Jersey.

  • 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!
