Located in downtown Morristown, N.J., Macculloch Hall has been part of the local community for over 200 years, first as the home to community-minded residents, George and Louisa Macculloch (1775-1858, 1785-1863), and since 1950, as a not-for-profit museum and garden. Founder W. Parsons Todd (1877-1976) endowed MHHM as a resource for all Morristown and Morris County residents. A Federal brick mansion, Macculloch Hall was built in 1810 by George Perrott Macculloch (1775-1858), the "Father of the Morris Canal." Today this historic house and decorative arts museum comprises nine period rooms, two exhibition galleries, a dedicated classroom, and an expansive formal garden, which is open to the public free of charge.

Friend and I wanted to visit here to see if we might want to put it for an adult singles group event (we do!). Easy to park right in front or across the street (free!). We were the only two people for the 1:15 tour. Basically, we saw 9 rooms. I especially enjoyed seeing some plates that were used during... More

We went for the December Thomas Nast exhibit at Christmastime. It was cool seeing his actual drawings and paintings and read about his career. His actual house is right across the street. The house has mostly authentic pieces, including the "Three Sisters" chandeliers. The classroom downstairs had desks from the time period and even some doodles still carved in the... More
