The French and Indian War in Hunterdon County
The Old Barracks Museum in Trenton is best known for its Colonial architecture and variety of uses during the Revolutionary War, especially when it housed both British and Hessian soldiers during the Battle of Trenton on January 2, 1777. But originally the Barracks was built by the British in 1758 during the French and Indian War in direct response to petitions from residents who were tired of having to host soldiers in their homes. At the time it was built, it was the second largest public building in New Jersey.
Richard Patterson, the Executive Director of the Old Barracks, will detail the history of early Trenton, Hunterdon County, where residents were required to quarter soldiers during the French and Indian War and Britain's response

A Hunterdon Silver Dog-Head Sword and the Civil War within the American Revolution
Come hear stories of Hunterdon patriots and loyalists discovered while exploring the history of a Revolutionary War sword. Dr. Lawrence Brasher, a native of Morristown and professor at Birmingham-Southern College, will exhibit his heirloom 1775 silver-hilted dog-head sword--the rarest form of Revolutionary War sword--made in Hunterdon County. Only a handful of such swords exist. Larry's research reveals the sword's connections to Trenton silversmiths, Washington's crossing, Scotch-Irish animosities toward England, and the loyalist raid on the Jones Tavern in Lebanon Township (now Clinton). The sword story uncovers shifting patriot-loyalist commitments within local families and the civil war that divided Revolutionary Hunterdon County. This presentation will intrigue anyone who is interested in the Revolution and also anyone who has a family artifact and wonders how it relates to the history of its time. After his talk, Larry will be available to sign copies of his new book about the sword and the Revolution in Hunterdon County.

Clawson House Open House
The East Amwell Historical Society will host a free open house at the Clawson House on Saturday and Sunday, October 21 and 22 from noon to 3 p.m.
Everyone is invited to check out the historic Federal-style home, built around 1810, and see the incredible improvements made within the past year. EAHS members will give tours of the house and discuss its past. Three displays will invite visitors to view artifacts from the Edward Quick Collection, the Grace Cronce Collection and on the Clawson House. Refreshments will be served, and donations will be deeply appreciated.
The house is located at 1053 Old York Road and fronts Marion F. Clawson Park. Harold and Marion Clawson owned the farm and house for decades. In 1999, the township purchased the property to establish a park, but the house sat boarded up for several years.
EAHS has made tremendous progress with the building, and this past summer the exterior of the back entrance with a ramp providing access to everyone was finished.
Once renovations are completed, the building will serve several purposes, including: the headquarters of the East Amwell Historical Society, the home of the township’s museum, a local history research library, and a place to store and display items from the Edward Quick Collection, the Grace Cronce Collection and artifacts and memorabilia preserved by the East Amwell Historical Society.
