Morven Museum & Garden
55 Stockton Street, Princeton, NJ 08540
Morven Museum & Garden is a historic 18th-century house that served as the New Jersey governor's mansion for nearly four decades in the 20th century. The house was built in the 1750s by Richard Stockton, who was later a signer of the Declaration of Independence. It was the governor's mansion from 1944 until 1981. Morven became a museum in 1982 after the Governor's Mansion was re-designated to Drumthwacket.
Exhibitions at the museum focus on the history and culture of New Jersey. It also hosts educational programs and other events.
