The Frelinghuysen Arboretum is a beautiful public arboretum donated by the Frelinghuysen family in 1971. George Frelinghuysen was a patent attorney and son of Frederick Frelinghuysen who was the Secretary of State under President Arthur. In 1881, George married Sara Ballantine, granddaughter of the founder of the P. Ballantine Brewing Company. The Frelinghuysen Arboretum is built on the property that was the couple's farm and summer home. When George and Sara died, their daughter Matilda inherited the property and bequeathed it to the Morris County Park Commission when she died with the intent that they would use the property as an arboretum. The Frelinghuysen Arboretum was dedicated in 1971. The Haggerty Education Center was opened in 1989.
The Arboretum is located at 353 East Hanover Ave in Morris Township, NJ and offers many interesting programs throughout the year.
