2. Senate Chamber

Senate Chamber

 

 

Washington's troops fought more battles in New Jersey than anywhere else. Artist William Brantley Van Ingen designed sixteen symbolic murals for the Senate Chamber to celebrate New Jersey's hard won freedom and prosperity. Scenes include the Revolutionary War battles of Trenton, Princeton, and Monmouth, as well as important industries, such as building construction, glass making, agriculture and ceramics. The domed skylight overhead features the names of famous New Jerseyans, including Governor (William Livingston), inventor (Seth Boyden), and Civil War General (George B. McClellan). Originally completed in 1903, the Senate Chamber is the third such chamber dedicated to the upper House to exist at the capitol. The first now serves the Governor's Office, making New Jersey's State House the second oldest in continuous use in the entire nation.
