The New Jersey Historical Commission has honored the Morven Museum with its 2013 “Award of Recognition”, which is given annually to individuals and organizations that have helped preserve New Jersey history and have increased public awareness of and appreciation for that history.

A National Historic Landmark, Morven is situated on five acres in the heart of Princeton at 55 Stockton Street. This former New Jersey Governor’s Mansion showcases the cultural heritage of the Garden State through regular exhibitions, educational programs and special events.

Morven’s programming and award-winning exhibitions attract thousands of visitors each year. Attendance increased more than 100 percent over the past year, building on steady previous increases. Nearly 7,000 visitors viewed the most recent exhibition “Coastal Impressions: Painters of the Jersey Shore, 1880-1940.” Morven collaborates with more than 100 regional organizations and businesses annually.

The prize committee lauded Morven’s efforts as exemplary, naming Morven one of New Jersey’s leading cultural assets.

Morven has fully restored its mansion, buildings, and gardens as part of a decades-long, multi-million dollar effort.  A groundbreaking ceremony will soon take place for a new center to welcome visitors.
