Governor and First Lady Invite Residents to Holiday Open Houses at Drumthwacket

Governor Phil Murphy and First Lady Tammy Murphy invite New Jersey residents to attend The Holidays at Drumthwacket, a longstanding tradition of open houses at the official Executive Mansion in Princeton.

The Drumthwacket Foundation, in partnership with nine garden clubs representing eight different counties from across the state, has decorated each room using fresh arrangements and greenery to complement the architecture and decor of the historical property. This year, the governor and first lady have doubled the number of hours that Drumthwacket will be open for holiday tours and expect many New Jerseyans to experience The Holidays at Drumthwacket.

“The holiday season is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate, reflect on our blessings, and spend time with loved ones,” said First Lady Tammy Murphy. “Drumthwacket is a beautiful point of pride for our state and we hope everyone will visit and enjoy the historical property. Phil and I look forward to the tradition of opening the People’s House and sharing this joyful season with all New Jerseyans.”

The tours are self-guided and there will be several docents stationed throughout Drumthwacket to answer questions and provide historical information about the property.

Admission and on-site parking are free but reservations are required.
