HUNTERDON HISTORICAL SOCIETY'S MANUSCRIPT COLLECTIONS WORKSHOP
The Hunterdon County Historical Society announces a fall workshop on using the manuscript collections of the Hunterdon County Historical Society Library on Thursday, November 3, 2016 from 6:30-8:30 pm at the Hiram E. Deats Memorial Library at 114 Main Street in Flemington.
Don Cornelius, HCHS Manuscript Coordinator for the past ten years, will explain the major records held by the Society, show examples of each and explain how to search and access these records for personal or professional research projects. The Hunterdon County Historical Society collections include printed volumes, manuscripts, deeds, newspapers, maps, broadsides and photographs covering the history of Hunterdon County from the 18th century to the present day. 
The seminar is geared for researchers who use the library regularly, as well as for beginning researchers to better understand the wealth of resources available at the County Historical Society.  There is no fee to attend the evening workshop, but patrons must pre-register as space is limited. Registrants may call @908-782-1091 or e-mail the administrator to register.
The Hunterdon County Historical Society was founded in 1885 to collect, preserve and share the history of the entire County of Hunterdon.  The Society operates the Hiram E. Deats Memorial Research Library and The Doric House Museum on Main Street in Flemington and the archive building on River Road.  For more information about the Society visit the website.

Looking for a story with a good plot? Well, how about a plot with a good story!
The Hunterdon County 300th Committee is hosting an American Revolutionary Cemetery Bus Tour of the southern portion of the county on Saturday, Nov. 5.
The bus leaves East Amwell Township Hall, 1070 Route 202/31 at 9:00 a.m. and will stop at four cemeteries, and one former British officer’s burial site.
Participants will discover Sons of Liberty, men who shouldered muskets against the British and Hessians, a spy, a key player in George Washington’s legendary crossing of the Delaware River, a pall bearer at Washington’s funeral, a doctor who treated a deathly ill Marquis de Lafayette and more. The tour ends at the site commemorating the Amwell Skirmish where a British cornet, killed in the fight, was once buried.
The 3 ½ hour excursion will also take guests past a number of the county’s revolutionary-era historic sites.
Tour guide for the event is Dave Harding, a member of the East Amwell and Hunterdon County historical societies. Dave has given numerous cemetery and walking tours, and is the author of a self-guided tour of downtown Ringoes.
The tour will include some walking to the John Ringos’ monument and the Amwell Skirmish site, so wear comfortable shoes. Park in the baseball field lot on Wertsville Road behind the East Amwell Township Hall building and walk to town hall.
A second tour covering the northern half of Hunterdon County will be held the following Saturday, Nov. 12, with John Allen.

($) Revolutionary War Cemetery Tour North
(DOWNLOAD PRESS RELEASE)

Our adventure starts at the North Branch of the County Library, 65 Halstead Street, Clinton, NJ where we will board  our bus to visit three North County cemeteries, each of which is the final resting place of veterans from the American Revolution:  Spruce Run Cemetery, DAR Memorial Park Cemetery and the Bethlehem Presbyterian Cemetery. This will be no ordinary tour, however. Our tour guide, historian John Allen, will discuss not just the soldiers' service, but also of genealogical resources used to track down ancestors, maintaining older burial grounds, including photographing and restoring old headstones, and about the supply function that helped keep soldiers fed, clothed, and armed while in the field, and who was charged with restoring their health when sick or wounded! And learn of the early history of the Bethlehem Presbyterian Church.
Snacks and water will be provided and, at our second stop, the Daughters of the American Revolution will also be on hand with goodies!  

$10 PER PERSON -- MUST BE RECEIVED WITHIN THREE BUSINESS DAYS OF YOUR RESERVATION.  Checks payable and mailed to The Hunterdon Tricentennial Committee, 3 Chorister Place, Flemington, NJ 08822.  Please mark event in your check's memo line.

FULPER AND STANGL POTERY-A COLORFUL GLAZING HISTORY
Mr. Jon Kornacki and Mr. Peter Meissner will detail the rise and decline of the Fulper and Stangl
potteries in Flemington and the world renowned utilitarian and art pottery created in Hunterdon County from 1857 until the 20th century. The lecture will be held at Presbyterian Church, 10 East Main Street in Flemington. The event is free and open to the public!
Messrs. Kornacki and Meissner are both long-time collectors and researchers of the Fulper and Stangl Company. Mr. Kornacki has been published in the Journal of American Art Pottery Association and focuses his research on Fulper art pottery, most especially Fulper’s lamps, the subject of his latest comprehensive book. 
Mr. Meissner is the country’s leading authority on early Stangl artware.  He has written dozens of articles for the Stangl/Fulper Collector’s Club for which he has served both as president and vice-president.
The talk will last about 50 minutes, followed by questions and refreshments will be served. For more information about the Hunterdon County Historical Society visit their web site
