Directions:

Garden State Parkway to Exit 140. East on Morris Avenue. Across from Kean University.

Hints:

After the tour go out through the gardens and orchard to the open field in the opposite direction from the blue house. Find the small house in the South East corner of the property. From the Eastern corner of the house, walk into the woods 15 paces. Be careful not to trip over pieces of an old rusty fence (not barbed). On the right is a tree root that has erupted. Move the old piece of concrete to find a letterbox hidden under the root.

Background:

Estate of William Livingston, first elected governor of New Jersey, so popular that he was re-elected 16 times.
