GEORGE WASHINGTON by Bus McGinnity (Photo-Jerry Dalia)Kingsland Manor - Open House Tour

Sunday, February 18, 2018

1 P.M. to 4 P.M.

If George Washington didn't sleep here, why is his portrait over the fireplace?

In 1909, the McGinnity family purchased the home. Daniel McGinnity, a famous fight promoter and entertainment entrepreneur, used Nutley as a training camp for his prize fighters.

It was Bernard “Bus” McGinnity, Daniel’s son who ran a speak-easy in the basement of the Kingsland Manor during Prohibition.

Bus McGinnity was a cartoonist and left drawings on the walls, in the cellar and other places you can't see these days.

After Prohibition was repealed, he and his mother, Katherine, ran it as the Colonial Club until their liquor license was revoked. Then the Manor became known as the Nutley Private Hospital, as the McGinnitys operated a convalescent home.

Visit this 1700s brownstone Dutch colonial steeped in history and explore the historic homestead of the Kingsland family and beyond, set within park like grounds overlooking a pond and waterfalls.

The Kingsland Manor is open to visitors on scheduled open house days - the third Sunday of the month, as available, - between 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. Free Admission. Donations gratefully appreciated.

The Kingsland Manor is located on the corner of Kingsland Street and Lakeside Drive. For more information call 973-661-3410, or email.

Watch for information on our Kingsland Manor Facebook group.

Richard Kingsland Returns Home to Kingsland Manor in Nutley

Richard Kingsland portrait unveiling on Sept. 18, 2016On Sept. 18, 2016, we unveiled our prize possession, an original painting of Richard Kingsland in the newly decorated north parlor at our open house.

The oil portrait of Richard Kingsland has been offered to the Kingsland Manor by his descendants. Richard was the grandson of Joseph Kingsland and brother to Joseph Kingsland III. Together they were partners in the paper business in Nutley.

Richard Kingsland – the portrait – has crossed the country from Colorado and now awaits its new home in Nutley. Richard is home and we found a generous donor to assume the total cost of having him shipped home! Join us for our formal reveal of the painting during our open house at the Kingsland Manor on Sept. 18.
