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

 Each map is printed on quality paper and priced at $30 each or $75 for a complete set of three. Maps measure about 30" x 20".

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.

GENTLEMEN!
KINDLY RESPECT THE LADY IN OUR MIDST!

After Prohibition was repealed, he and his mother, Katherine, ran it as the Colonial Club until their liquor license was revoked.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.

By 1938, the estate was offered at a Sheriff's sale for roughly $4,000 in back taxes and liens.

Opening The Bus McGinnity Speakeasy to visitors will be announced when renovations are complete. Meanwhile visit our open house tour for more background on where this gin joint was located in good old Nutley, New Jersey.
