Richard Kingsland Returns Home to Kingsland Manor in Nutley

Richard Kingsland portrait unveiling on Sept. 18, 2016On Sept. 18, 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.

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.
