The things I like best about Macculloch Hall are the neighborhood and the gardens. It's located in a section of Morristown that was known as "Little Dublin" that has some of the most interesting homes, buildings, and churches you'll ever see. Many homes are known as "painted ladies", others are fine historical homes, and there's even one home that looks like a Frank Lloyd Wright prairie style. There's also the nearby old Library well worth seeing, including it's very unique interior design.

The Macculloch Hall gardens are behind the mansion and are accessible by a gate on the right side (when open). They are laid out on a pleasant wooded hill side where you can wander down and then back and around and see how the rich people lived in the gilded days.

So whenever I take friends on a walk or bike ride to see the area, I always stop by Macculloch Hall to show them the unique gardens in the back yard. It's free to access during posted hours and days.

Local history buffs will love Macculloch Hall. Most rooms are furnished in the period and the rotating exhibits are always interesting. The upstairs exhibit of the Morris Canal is worthwhile.
Do check the website before your visit, since there are frequent lectures/concerts/poetry readings.

Our group tour of Macculloch Hall was very informative and covered the history of the Macculloch and Miller families. The house has been restored due to a collection of original antiques by a benefactor. The furnishings and artwork on display were beautiful and associated with different time period. The tour takes you through the upstairs rooms as well as the basement. The stairs to the basement are steep and twisty. There is a gallery in the house which now houses the collection of artwork and drawing of Thomas Nast. Plan to spend about one and a half hours on the tour. because it was winter, we did not get to see the garden but will come back again to visit it.
