Macculloch Hall Historical Museum

Macculloch Hall Historical Museum is in the heart of Morristown’s National Historic District. Its mission is to share its resources with the public, preserving the 140-year history of the Macculloch/Miller families, the community, and the legacy of its founder through its historic sites, collections, exhibits, and educational programs. Its 1810 manor house tells the family and founder’s stories, and how it acquired the bulk of caricaturist Thomas Nast’s original artwork. The building is the common thread that binds these elements together, and its interpretation is strengthened through the collection housed in it.
