Morris County Historical Society’s Acorn Hall was built as a private residence in 1853 and modified to the Italianate Villa style by 1860. A house museum since 1971, it is decorated with original family furnishings, fabrics and decorative arts. Acorn Hall serves as an authentic representation of early upper-middle class suburban life in Morris County. MCHS hosts changing exhibits on local cultural history, and offers the Gallery Gift Shop, full of locally-made gifts.
Acorn Hall and grounds are listed on the New Jersey and National Registers of Historic Places. Additionally, in recognition of the preservation efforts of last family resident Mary Crane Hone, Acorn Hall is listed on the NJ Women’s Heritage Trail.
Acorn Hall’s grounds include wide lawn areas, woodlands, and gardens maintained by The Home Garden Club of Morristown in cooperation with the Rutgers Cooperative Extension Master Gardeners Program.
