This year we have expanded the activities during the Festival to include two Thursday evenings with Beth Allan giving special Morven After Dark tours, tea with the Governor's Girls, and after last year's successful gingerbread house-making, adults have their very own session, complete with adult refreshments,"
Festival of Trees decorators include:

About Morven Museum & Garden
For more than 200 years Morven has played a role in the history of New Jersey and the nation. Originally part of a 5,500-acre tract purchased from William Penn in 1701 by the Stockton family, it is the home of Richard Stockton, a Signer of the Declaration of Independence. As well as serving as a Stockton homestead for several generations into the 20th century, Morven was home to the families of Robert Wood "The General" Johnson Jr., and eventually five New Jersey governors, three generations of enslaved families, respective domestic workers, and staff. Morven Museum & Garden showcases the rich cultural heritage of the Garden State through regular exhibitions, educational programs, and special events.
