Our scientific side would prefer to blame meteorologists for Sunday’s closure of the Macculloch Hall and Historical Museum, and the cancellation of its scheduled talk about Morristown’s most infamous 19th-century killer.

Forecasts of snow have caused many local streets–including Macculloch Avenue–to be posted with emergency “no parking” signs today, March 2, 2014.

And so the museum has closed. A staff member said she hopes that retired Judge Kenneth MacKenzie’s talk about Antoine LeBlanc can be rescheduled, as part of the museum’s Controversies exhibit.



  1. We are pleased to announce that the previously cancelled program, ” Spring Speaker Series in conjunction with the exhibit “Controversies” Judge Kenneth C. MacKenzie (retired) – The Antoine Le Blanc Case” that had been scheduled for Sunday March 2nd and was postponed due to town street closures, has been rescheduled for Sunday March 23rd at 4:30pm . please visit and the Museum Facebook page for more details.
    Thank you.
