Macculloch Hall Historical Museum
Newly arrived British immigrants George and Louisa Macculloch built Macculloch Hall in 1810. They expanded their Federal-style mansion in 1812 and 1819, tripling its size, as their family's prominence in local, state, and national affairs grew. Come explore the largest collection of original work of political cartoonist Thomas Nast (1840-1902), art, and American history where it happened.
Experience American and European fine and decorative art in a nineteenth-century local family's mansion. Explore the work of Thomas Nast (1840-1902), the "father of American political cartoons," who once lived just across Macculloch Avenue.
Once home to a 26-acre working farm, today our gardens are open daily FREE to the public. Enjoy MHHM's wisteria, given to the Macculloch family by Commodore Matthew Perry in 1857, and visit the second-oldest sassafras tree in New Jersey.
Open daily 9:00 am to 5:00 pm.
