New Jersey's state building  was a practical reproduction of the old Ford Tavern
at Morristown, N.J., which was used as Washington's headquarters during
the winter of 1779-80. Alexander Hamilton made his home there that
winter, and at the inn,  met the daughter of General Schuyler, whom he
afterwards married. Among other famous men who have been beneath its
roof were  Lafayette, Steuben, Kosciusko,  "Light Horse" Harry Lee,  "Mad Anthony" Wayne, and Benedict Arnold.






















The building was erected at  a cost of 15,000 dollars and measured 63 by 84 feet.

Inside, wall papers of colonial pattern and antique furniture in vogue during the revolutionary days were displayed.  A feature of the main hall was the
old-fashioned fire-place and  interesting collection of relics of historic value. On the main floor, a room  was reproduced to look like the one  Washington used as a as a bed-chamber.

After the Fair closed, the building was relocated  Kirkwood, Missouri and was turned into a four-apartment complex. It was later torn down.

New Jersey had  nice displays in the Palaces of Mines and Metallurgy and  Forestry, Fish and Game; but their largest exhibit was at the Palace of Education.

Because of the cost of shipping fresh New Jersey produce to  the Fair on a steady basis, the state did not display in the Palace of Agriculture.


New Jersey had an exhibit also of road building in the Model City, showing the manner of constructing and maintaining the excellent highways of that state. 

In the Palace of Electricity New Jersey displays ranked among the best, as was also the case in the Palace of Machinery.

In the Palace of Liberal Arts interesting exhibits were displayed by various business enterprises of the state.
