    SETTLEMENT AND RIVER TRADE ALONG THE DELAWARE RIVER IN THE PRE-CANAL PERIOD
During the 18th century and well into the 19th century, Durham boats -the boat best known for its use by General George Washington’s troops to cross the river before the Battle of Trenton in 1776- piled the middle and upper Delaware  to transport the region’s products to urban markets in exchange for goods not available locally.  Join historic preservation expert Dennis Bertland in a talk that is based on a research project that he conducted for the Knowlton Township Historical Commission for the Ramseysburg Homestead, a historic site in Warren County associated with early settlement and trade along the Delaware.

LIFE ALONG THE SOUTH BRANCE: BETWEEN CLINTON AND FLEMINGTON
Once upon a time, before aquired by our County for parkland, lands along the South Branch were used for various purposes including several summer camps, scout camps, and health camps.  Former Parks Department staff member Doug Kiovsky has researched and published a book about Hunterdon's parks.  Join him for a history of several areas all along water courses of Hunterdon.  Stories will include the history of a few of the famous iron bridges, a businessman's attempt to dam the river for its hydroelectric powers, and the forgotten settlement of Rowland's Mills.  The history of the Arboretum will be included since it was originally George Bloomer's Nursery and a tributary from the property flows into Prescott Brook which then quickly flows into the South Branch. Following the talk, you may want to take a stroll into the Arboretum and enjoy the view.  2 pm.  Hunterdon County Arboretum, Route 31.  Free. Reservations recommended.  Refreshments follow.
