EAST AMWELL CEMETERY 'CLEAN UP' DAY - All Are Welcome to Participate
Begins at 11am
Tucked away in the woods on Mountain Road in East Amwell are two small, adjoining cemeteries. These were family cemeteries for the Hunt and Simerson families. The cemeteries’ grounds have become overgrown and the early 1800s tombstones have been woefully neglected. The East Amwell Historical Society is sponsoring our first Cemetery Cleanup. When the work is complete and the twenty or so stones are uncovered – we will be honoring and preserving our Past for the future. More on the project – and the day’s proceedings – as we get closer to Cemetery Clean Up 2015.
Email Mr. Davidson for additional information

(R) HUNTERDON MOVIES! A HERITAGE TRIPLE FEATURE
2 Showings of an exciting triple feature of Hunterdon movies.... We start with the documentary short "A Man and his Land" made by the Grange League Federation (today's Global Agway) in 1941 about modern farming techniques. The film features Harold Everitt and his farm on Kuhl Road in Raritan Township.  The second film is "Where Have All the Farmers Gone?" which was produced in 1999 by the Hunterdon Cultural & Heritage Commission about the loss of some of Hunterdon's best farms to development. Finally, we show the Emmy Award winning "The Town That Disappeared Overnight" about the creation of Round Valley Reservoir and the taking of some of the best agricultural land by the State of NJ. The film's producer, David Kuznicki and County Historian Stephanie Stevens will be on hand to answer questions.  

Please be advised this event will start promptly.  The films will be shown concurrently with little or no break. The total viewing time of the three films is approximately 75 minutes followed by Q&A time with David and Stephanie.  

Fun snacks will be available before and during the event.

DO THEY KNOW WHERE THE BODIES ARE BURIED?
Michelle Kuhn & Mike Gagliano from the New Jersey Geological and Water Survey will review the findings of their recent Ground Penetrating Radar scans at the Flemington Presbyterian Church Cemetery. They say "We know where the bodies are buried."  But do they? Did they find a mass grave location, used for poor people, within the cemetery?
Did they find the foundation of the original church?
Did they locate the three Revolutionary War soldiers mentioned in Dr. Mott's 1894 book, "History of the Flemington Presbyterian Church"?
Are there many graves without headstones?
They will also discuss how the Ground Penetrating Radar process works and software programs they use to interpret the data.
A Q&A period will follow their brief presentation.
This program may be of interest to church members, scientists, historians, cemetery enthusiasts/caretakers & archaeologists.

7PM at the Flemington Presbyterian Church

The program is free and open to the public.
