Macculloch Hall Historical Museum’s collection is comprised of primarily American and English 18th and 19th century decorative arts including period furniture, textiles (Oriental carpets), ceramics, silver, and glass. Fine art includes 18th and 19th century works on paper, oil paintings, miniature portraits, and the nation’s largest collection of original works by political cartoonist Thomas Nast. The archival collection documents 150 years of the Macculloch-Miller family’s role in local, New Jersey and national civics.
Macculloch Hall Historical Museum contributes to the community by preserving and interpreting the collection that W. Parsons Todd established. The Museum’s collection exists for exhibition and education. As stewards of this collection, the Museum maintains a well-defined acquisition and deaccession policy that encompasses and supports our Mission Statement and guides us in strengthening the existing collection.
