(R) SPECIAL TOUR AND BOOK READING AT THE DVOOR HOUSE
The Farmers' Market will be open and so will the house! Partnering with our great friends at the Hunterdon Land Trust, we are pleased to offer an inside tour of the 1798Dvoor House. The farmstead was originally purchased  by Johann Philip Kase in 1738.  Kase was famously befriended by Lenape Indian Chief Tuccamirgan who is buried in the Kase family cemetery on Bonnell Street in Flemington Borough. Following the tour, artist and author Emily Schalk, a talented Girl Scout Gold Award Candidate who the Hunterdon Tricentennial Committee sponsored last year, will read her new book, "Addie Dvoor and the Farm", published by Hunterdon County for the 300th, about the Dvoor House and the history of the farm's settlement by the Kases.  The book will be available for purchase with all proceeds going to the 300th.  The picture book is a stunner!

CHILDREN'S HISTORICAL CRAFT PROJECT AND STORY TIME
Join 4-H Leader Carol Weisenpacher and make a fun historical 4-H craft. Back in the day, there was little time on the farm for fun crafts -- crafting was meant for useful items and generally meant embellishing or creating a useful object.  Children will learn to make fabric "yo-yos" in this simple sewing project.  Yo-yos will be decorated with buttons from Carol's own "button box" and then used to embellish tea towels.  Yo-yos have been around for many years and were especially popular in the United States in the 1930s and 40s.
FREE -- ALL SUPPLIES INCLUDED!
Ages 9 thru 13.
10am-11:30am

($) EXPLORE GRAVE MATTERS - 2
With the East Amwell Historical Society
Hop on Aboard the Air-Conditioned History Bus Tour.

The East Amwell Historical Society seems to know where all the bodies are buried, and the group is happy to clue you in. Join EAHS for its second cemetery tour, Grave Matters 2, on Saturday, June 20 featuring trips to five cemeteries.
The air-conditioned History Bus will head out to visit five cemeteries: four in East Amwell and one in neighboring Hopewell. The cemeteries are all different from the ones in last year’s tour.
The historical society will offer morning and afternoon sessions of this tour with the bus leaving from the town hall parking lot. The morning session begins at 10:00 a.m. and the afternoon at 2:00 p.m. Tickets cost $15 per person.
The tour features stops at the Ringos’ family burial ground, Union Cemetery, the Quick-Servis Cemetery and the Wertsville Baptist Church Cemetery. The trip will end at the First Baptist Church in Hopewell, which serves as the final resting place for Declaration of Independence signer John Hart.
Discover the fascinating stories of the men and women buried in these grounds ranging from American Revolutionary soldiers to someone who perished with the Titanic.
