September 29, 2022 from 12:00 noon to 1:00pm: Signing the Declaration with Morven Museum & Garden
Led by Morven docent Kim Gallagher
Richard Stockton, a lawyer and signer of the Declaration of Independence, acquired the land that would eventually become Morven Museum & Garden (Princeton, NJ) in the 1750s. Join Morven docent Kim Gallagher for a visual exploration of Morven’s origins and Richard Stockton’s complicated relationship with the Declaration of Independence and early founding of our nation. The presentation will be followed by a Q&A discussion with Kim and Morven’s Curator of Education & Public Programs Greer Luce.
A National Historic Landmark, Morven is situated on five pristine acres in the heart of Princeton, New Jersey. The home of Richard Stockton, a signer of the Declaration of Independence and former New Jersey Governor’s Mansion, Morven showcases the rich cultural heritage of the Garden State through regular exhibitions, educational programs, and special events.
