Acorn Hall and Gardens

Acorn Hall, located in Morristown, New Jersey, Is an Italian mansion that was built in 1853. It is now the home of the Morris County Historical Society. The gardens around the building are quite nice. There is a rose garden that contains thirty varieties  of Victorian roses, a formal knot garden, and a lovely fern garden.

Tours of the property are given Wednesday and Thursday from 11:00 AM to 4:00 PM, and on Sunday from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM. Admission for adults is $6.00. Children under twelve are admitted free.   


  1. Hi Sherry,

    Just checking out that Italian mansion would be quite interesting, based on how fascinating the mansion looks.

    Take care.


    1. It's worth the trip just to see that.

  2. That would be a fun place. The local museum around here used to be in a mansion in the city. They moved it to a newer building. I miss the old place.

  3. Interesting! I never knew about this space but grew up rather close to it. Thanks for sharing Sherry!

  4. you had me at italian mansion!

  5. I need to see how far that is from my Dad's home in PA. Worth a little drive.

  6. This might be a case where the house is more interesting than the garden!
