Built as a private residence in 1853, Acorn Hall was enlarged and remodeled in 1860 in the Victorian Italianate villa style. Retaining many original 19th-century furnishings, fabrics, and decorative arts, Acorn Hall is a lasting example of upper middle-class life in late-19th century Morristown.
The museum hosts changing exhibits on local history and offers a gift shop and formal garden. Acorn Hall is listed on the New Jersey State and National Registers of Historic Places and is also part of the New Jersey Women's Heritage Trail. The preservation of Acorn Hall is attributed to the Crane-Hone women, including the last family resident of the hall, Mary Crane-Hone. Since acquiring the property in 1972 from Mary, the Morristown Historical Society has honored this preservation legacy of the Crane-Hone women.
