Enjoy the annual tours of the historic, landmark Apple Tree House which is MJCH's home throughout the day, along with three new and distinctive features:


The Ramapough Lunaape Nation Munsee will have an official tribal representative present in the  Apple Tree House, Ms. Ivy Payne, at a table where she will be displaying and offering for sale clothing and and engraved wooden plaques made by her that incorporate ancient Lunaape design elements.


Mr.John Hallanan II will be at a table providing information on Revolutionary War Hero the Marquis de Lafayette's triumphant return visit to the United States in 1824-1825. Lafayette was active in what is now Jersey City during the War For Independence and was feted here on his return. Hallanan is raising money to place a historical marker on the grounds of the Five Corners Branch of the Jersey City Free Public Library, the site of the festivities that greeted his return.


Finally, there will be a pop up exhibit of some of the antique furniture that was part of the collections of the old Jersey City Museum, which MJCH has successfully repatriated. This furniture represents a variety of periods and styles and has links with key figures in the cultural, economic, and social history of the City of Jersey City.  


Located at The Apple Tree House, each month the Museum of Jersey City History hosts monthly open houses and is also available, by appointment, for group visits.
