Morven Museum & Garden

July 4th Jubilee


July 4th Jubilee

Thursday, July 4, 12 noon – 3:00 p.m.

Free to the Public with Many New Features this year!

Every year, in honor of Independence Day, Morven hosts a FREE event to celebrate our American heritage at the home-turned-museum of Richard Stockton, a signer of the Declaration of Independence

Guests are invited to use the Princeton Theological Seminary or Monument Hall parking lots, or may park on the street. There will be no parking at Morven since many children will be on the grounds.

Weather: This event is SHINE only (due to the outdoor activities, it will be cancelled if there is prolonged rain).

For additional details call Curator of Education & Public Programs Debra Lampert-Rudman at 609.924.8144, ext. 106.
