Try carving a pumpkin or working up the courage to go on a ghost tour
Between our centuries-old history, impressive fall color display, and festivals, and events in and around our city, Elizabeth is the perfect place for you and your family to celebrate the season.
Make sure to visit the Liberty Hall Museum and Academic Center, which hosts a pumpkin patch as well as hayrides, pumpkin carving, and even ghost tours. It’s very likely you’ll see a ghost during your visit. After all, Liberty Hall was built in the 1700s in the height of the American Revolution. Maybe you’ll spot the ghost of William Livingston, New Jersey’s first elected governor, who built and lived in what was originally a private country home with his family.
Not only is Elizabeth near New York City, but also a great destination for fall fun since it is near some of New Jersey’s most beautiful farms. Take a short drive over to Morristown, home of Wightman Farms, which hosts a harvest festival every year with hayrides, corn mazes, and apple picking.
