Friends and family from far and wide will marvel over the artfully designed accents celebrating history, pop culture, sustainably, and superheroes - all of which are sure to put you in the spirit of the season!

Continue your festive traditions at Morven by attending one of their Holiday Wreath Making Workshops. Sessions will be held on Monday, November 27 at 1:00pm & 6:00pm and Tuesday, November 28 at 1:00pm & 6:00pm. Create a wreath using a variety of natural decorations from Morven’s gardens, ribbon, and assorted “holiday bling.” No prior experience is required; Morven’s horticulturalist Louise Senior will guide participants and offer advice throughout the session. Tickets are $55 for General Admission, $45 for Morven Members. Ticket price includes one wreath.  Space is limited to 24 participants per session.

Morven Museum & Garden is located at 55 Stockton Street in Princeton, New Jersey, and is open Wednesday through Sunday from 10:00am to 4:00pm. The gardens are open daily until dusk.

Most historic sites celebrate one notable resident. Morven is unique in that it was home to many remarkable people. Built in the 1750s and home to one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence, Richard Stockton, Morven was home to five generations of Stocktons, then Robert Wood Johnson, Jr. before becoming New Jersey’s first Governor’s Mansion and home to five New Jersey governors, their families and staffs, witnessing nearly 300 years of history.
