Sited on land that witnessed the 1777 Princeton battle for American independence, Drumthwacket is the stately home that is today the official residence of the Governor of New Jersey.

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Drumthwacket is one of the most fabled and elegant of America’s executive residences, and in its history lie the stories of three unique families who made immense contributions to New Jersey’s, and America’s history.
