Christmas tree


 Kingsland Manor


Kingsland Manor is a Dutch Colonial home dating from the 1700's, located in Nutley, New Jersey. 

 

Nutley is a town in Essex County. 

 

Martha Stewart grew up in Nutley, and Annie Oakley lived there as an adult.

Members of the Kingsland family were in America as early as the 1600s. 

 

The Nutley property was purchased by the family in 1790.

The town of Nutley acquired the property in 1973 and has spent much time in preserving the house.

Kingsland Manor is currently dressed up for the holidays!
