TEWKSBURY’S HISTORIC SITES & LANDMARKS LECTURE
The Tewksbury Historical Society will host a lecture on Tewksbury’s Historic Sites & Landmarks by Tewksbury Historian Shaun C. Van Doren on Sunday, May 15th at 1:00 p.m. at Society Headquarters in the Mountainville Meeting Hall, 60 Water Street, Mountainville.  The talk is free and open to the public.  Refreshments will be served.
The talk will illustrate Tewksbury’s officially designated historic sites and landmarks in the Township’s Master Plan and Development Regulations Ordinance. Ever wondered where Farley’s vault was or who was buried there? Cold Spring Cottage? Cokesbury Hotel? James Melick Homestead? Dr. Oliver Barnet Homestead? Come hear about these sites, Tewksbury’s churches and more. We’ll look at old photos as well as what they look like today. And what does it mean to be an historic site or landmark. Have old photos? Bring them to share.
