Liberty Bells

By Linda Tancs

Fans of shows like Downton Abbey surely wonder what life was truly like above or below stairs.  At Liberty Hall in Union, New Jersey you can quench your curiosity.  Built in 1772, the mansion was home to New Jersey’s first governor and later occupied by members of the Kean political family.  Like any dynasty, their needs were met by the ringing of a servant’s bell.  Open through November 2013, the exhibition “Ring for Service:  The Role of Servants in a Country House” welcomes visitors to all four floors of the family estate.  The house museum is located on Morris Avenue at Kean University.
