for tours on Sunday, January 3rd!

Kingsland Manor, Nutley, NJ

The holidays are such a rushed time of the year and you may have missed your chance to visit the Manor. 

The Historic Restoration Trust of Nutley will be opening the Kingsland Manor to provide everyone locally one more opportunity to see how the Manor was decorated for the Essex County Historic Holiday House tours.


On sale in our Ballroom will be reprints of historic maps of Nutley that were found in the archives of a local bank.  There are two sets of maps spanning the early decades of Nutley from when it was called Franklin and a part of Belleville.

The earlier set of maps is the 1890 Robinson maps that show the locations of some of the tracts of land owned by the prominent families that made up the foundation of Nutley while it was still Franklin.

The second set of maps is the 1906 maps that provide more detail of the roads, street car tracks and railroad that existed when Nutley was incorporated as a town.

Come visit the Manor for a tour of our grand holiday decorations and take the time to locate your home on the maps available for purchase in our Ballroom.  Each map is printed on quality paper and priced at $30 each or $75 for a complete set of three.

Proceeds from the sale of the maps will be used to purchase signage for all of the historic Nutley sites.

When: Sunday, January 3rd
Time: 1 pm to 4 pm
Where: The Kingsland Manor at 3 Kingsland Street

Kingsland Manor, Nutley, N.J.Kingsland Manor
to host 1860s style
base ball game

Saturday, 1 p.m. Sept. 19, 2015

at Yanticaw Park, Nutley, N.J.

Kingsland Manor to host a 1860s style base ball game

The Kingsland Manor is hosting a 1860s Base Ball game at Yanticaw Park, also known as "Boys Park" and is in need of players for the Kingsland Colonels Base Ball Club.

The Flemington Neshanock Base Ball Club versus Kingsland Colonels of Nutley Base Ball Club will be held at 1 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 19. Rain date is Sunday, Sept. 20.

Kingsland Manor, Nutley, N.J.The Flemington Neshanock Base Ball Club plays by 19th Century rules, uses authentic replicas of 19th Century equipment and wears 19th Century uniforms. As was the custom in the mid-19th Century, all fielders play barehanded - they do not wear gloves. Today's Neshanock were re-established in 2001 by Brad "Brooklyn" Shaw, proudly reviving the original name of the team.

The Nutley Colonels were a semi-professional base ball club that was managed by a local All-State baseball star, Anthony J. San Giacomo. The Kingsland Manor is re-establishing that classic base ball club, fielding a 'Colonel's' team against the Neshanock Base Ball Club at Yanticaw Park on Sept. 19.

Kingsland Manor, Nutley, N.J.Colonel team members will be instructed in the original 19th Century rules by Brad Shaw at a get together at the Kingsland Manor in August. The suggested team uniform will be white long-sleeved shirts and pants of a similar color and pill-box styled base ball caps.

The Trust is also looking for sponsors to help offset our expenses. Sponsors will be featured in a program at the game. Please call 973-661-3410 or email for more information.

Digitized Kingsland Papers

Presented to Nutley Public Library

The Historic Restoration Trust of Nutley presented digitized versions of the Kingsland Papers to the Board of Nutley Library at their monthly board meeting on March 24, 2015, 

The original Kingsland Papers are held in the Kingsland Manor archive. The documents on velum and parchment cover the period from 1720 until 1911 when the Kingslands sold the Manor and surrounding property to Daniel McGinnity, a boxing promoter and trainer, and his wife, Katherine, who later ran a private hospital in the Manor.

In 2014, the Trust was given a matching grant by the Essex County Local Arts and History Programs to have these documents digitized to preserve them. In order to make these digitized documents available to the citizens of Nutley, the Trust provided microfilm and a DVD of the document images to the library.
