The Tiffany silverware for the USS New Jersey was packed up and transported from
Drumthwacket, the New Jersey Governor’s residence in Princeton, NJ, and brought back to the Battleship
New Jersey Museum and Memorial, on the Camden Waterfront, NJ, today. The Battleship and the
Governor’s office agreed on a deal to share the silver for guests to see. The silverware is currently on display
in the Captain’s Cabin. Guests who take the Fire Power tour can check out the silver, which will be on display
throughout the spring and summer.
The silver collection, which consists of a punch bowl, cups anddishes, will be displayed in the Captain’s
Cabin. Invited guests to the Battleship’s Commissioning Anniversary ceremony on Monday, May 23 will be shown
the silver following the ceremony on the forecastle (forward deck) at 6:30pm.
