Force Homestead Museum Open

Saturday, May 18, 2019

The Force Homestead Museum will be open on Saturday, May 18, 2019 from 2 pm – 4 pm, instead of the customary second Sunday of the month, to coincide with Livingston’s Family Festival Day (part of Youth Appreciation Week).

The Thomas Force House is a wood frame building, consisting of three basic sections – a 1½-story center portion built around 1745, a large early 19th century 2 ½ story gambrel roofed unit, and a 1½-story 1927 garage addition on the west that also extended the width of the original 18th century section and raised its eastern roof plane. The Condit Family Cook House, a small 19th century 1½-story wood frame building with two small rooms, was moved onto the northwest corner of the property in 1964 from the current site of the Livingston Mall.
