Force Homestead Museum Open

Sunday, October 14, 2018

The Force Homestead Museum will be open to the public on Sunday, October 14, 2018 from 2 pm to 4 pm. Docents from the Livingston Historical Society will lead free tours.

Originally built in 1745 as a one-room house with a loft by Theophilus Ward, the architecture of this historic house reflects the daily lives of the early settlers. In 1777, Samuel Force purchased the farm and gave it to his son, Thomas Force. 

When the Township of Livingston purchased the Force Home in 1962, the Livingston Historical Society restored it. Learn more.

Docents from the Livingston Historical Society lead free tours of the Force Homestead on the second Sunday of the month during September, October, November, April, May, and June from 2 pm – 4 pm. In addition, private tours may be arranged by contacting Lorraine Palmer at 973-992-6896.
