2016 brings us the 240th anniversary of the beginning of the Revolutionary War so the Hunterdon 300th will be bringing you an amazing lecture and tour series about The Revolutionary War in Hunterdon!  EVERYTHING we do next year will be NEW! NO REPEATS! All new lectures and tours!  

AND WE ARE INVADING MERCER COUNTY-- that is, the portion that once was Hunterdon County in 1776!  

One of our more anticipated events in 2016 is an an extensive visit to the Old Barracks Museum in Trenton (once Hunterdon's County Seat). Originally built in 1758 during the French and Indian War, the Old Barracks were used by American soldiers when the Revolutionary War first started.  In 1776, British and Hessian soldiers (hisssss) troops occupied Trenton and some were housed there along with some Loyalists.  When General Washington and his army made his surprise attack (yay!) after crossing the Delaware River the Americans took back the Barracks and used it until 1781.
