3 Kingsland Street
Historic Maps of Nutley now available
for purchase at the Kingsland Manor
In the Ballroom, we now have on display and available to purchase, reprints of two sets of historic maps of Nutley. Most landowner’s names on these map plates are still known to us through streets named after them.
The earlier set of three maps is from the 1890 Robinson Atlas of Essex County that show the locations of some of the tracts of land owned by the prominent families that made up the area while it was still Franklin.
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.
We will work with the Nutley Historic Preservation Committee to use the proceeds from the sale of the maps to purchase signage for historic Nutley sites.

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.
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.
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.

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.
