PRINCETON, N.J. - July 8, 2020 - PRLog -- - "While we are anxious to welcome visitors back to Morven, a mechanical system decided it needed one more week of quarantine to be visitor-ready, so we are delaying our opening until Wednesday, July 15th," Executive Director Jill Barry shared today.

Morven Museum & Garden is located at 55 Stockton Street, Princeton, NJ and is open to the public Monday through Sunday, 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.



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, and is the only home of a New Jersey signer which is highly interpreted and open regularly to the public. As well as serving as a Stockton homestead for several generations into the 20th century, and home to three generations of enslaved families, Morven was home to the families and household staff of Robert Wood Johnson Jr., and was the first New Jersey Governors' Mansion and home to five New Jersey governors and their families and staffs.
