($) 2ND ANNUAL CEMETERY "CEMENER": Early Burial Grounds in Hunterdon County
The Hunterdon County Historical Society in partnership with the 300th presents a fascinating day talking about this grave topic. Delaware Townships Historian Emerita, Marfy Goodspeed, will deliver the keynote on those disappearing burial grounds that every old farm in Hunterdon had once upon a "pre-development" time.  

Authors of "New Jersey Cemeteries and Tombstones History in the Landscape", Dr. Richard Veit and Mark Nonestied will be the afternoon's featured speakers followed by a panel discussion on how to protect and preserve ancient farm burial grounds. The panel discussion will include the following people: Marcia Karrow, JoAnne Byrnes, Esq, Frank Banisch, Dave Reading & a yet to be named cemetery owner.

Afterwards, there will be a number of break-out sessions in the cemetery on various topics including both Revolutionary and Civil War veterans' graves, how to clean and restore headstones, how to properly light headstones for photographing, and the State DEP will demonstrate the use of Ground Penetrating Radar. Breakout session leaders include John Kuhl, Leslie & Bob Leith, John Allen, John O'Brien and from the State DEP Michelle Kuhn & Mike Gagliano.

The day will be moderated and hosted by Hunterdon County Historical Society President Charlie Fisher -- it's only a coincidence that he is also the director of a funeral parlor.... or is it?

Come and go as you please; come for the lectures, the panel discussion, the Cemetery Tours or just to come to meet and greet like-minded people; or stay for the day.

Join us for a unique powerpoint "tour" of some of Hunterdon's most special landmarks as we travel through our rural roads via artist Dan Campanelli's beautiful watercolor paintings.  Narrated by Dan and his wife, Marty, we will hear the history behind some of Hunterdon's most beloved architecture including barns, mills and farmhouses.  Dan and Marty Campanelli are highly regarded historians, having published several books on various aspects of Hunterdon's history.  Most recently, the Campanellis curated an exhibition on New Jersey's most historic samplers at Morven Museum where their companion tome on the subject sold out.
