THE MUSCONETCONG - HISTORICAL HIGHLIGHTS FROM THE HISTORIC ASBURY MILL AND BEYOND
The Musconetcong watershed has been a great place to live for the last 13,000 years.  The watershed’s water, land, and habitat resources made it a great place to be when the glaciers of the last ice age retreated and are what make it a great place for farming and outdoor recreation today.  Hear about the history of northwestern New Jersey from the setting of the former Hoffman Grist Mill, a restoration project of the Musconetcong Watershed Association that has been gaining steam over the last couple of years.  Located in the Asbury Historic District, it is home to some notable American trends that happened a bit earlier than elsewhere – the early agro-industrial revolution, the Second Great Awakening, and transportation technology innovation.  Alan Hunt, PhD, and Executive Director of the Musconetcong Watershed Association will talk about how history of place links with modern-day caring for place, and the linkage between the Association’s ongoing ecological, historical and conservation education efforts.  Main Branch County Library, Route 12
7 pm.

    HOLIDAY FUN FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY!
Come with the kiddos or just yourself! 

10 AM TO 2 PM: CHILDREN, TWEENS, TEENS (AND YES, YOU, TOO, MOM/DAD) CAN MAKE A BRACELET WITH THE HISTORIC ROPE MACHINE (from Holcombe-Jimison Farm Museum): choose different colors of yarns and make an amazing bracelet to keep or give as a gift! You pick the yarn and turn the crank handle and the machine twists and turns and knits the yarn into a colorful and interesting piece of jewelry! FREE.

11 AM TO NOON: Teacher and Historian Janice Armstrong will be with us for CHILDREN'S HISTORICAL CRAFTS AND GAMES: Corn Husk Toys, Lenape Medicine Pouch and more….
 your children can create a toy out of cornhusks just like children would have in the 1800’s. They can make their own Lenape Medicine Pouch to fill with tiny treasures. For children ages 6-12 years old. FREE.

10 AM TO 4:30 PM: Meanwhile, adults can shop their hearts content with our ANNUAL HOLIDAY SALE where we offer blowout prices on merchandise and have items that are classics for holiday gifts. An amazing goody basket will also be up for grabs that day and we will be serving free hot chocolate, lemonade and fabulous cookies and snacks all day.

2PM TO 4:15 PM: MOVIE SHOWING "IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE": Following our festivities, join us for a special holiday showing of "Its a Wonderful Life" starring Jimmy Stewart and Donna Reed in Frank Capra's classic. "Water, Water Everywhere" indeed! -- this classic film opens up with our hero pondering if his life is worth living on a historical truss bridge over churning water in a small town called Bedford Falls.... The inspiration for this was our very own Califon Borough and their gorgeous, restored historic truss bridge! The villain of the story, Mr. Potter, creates a depressing vision of a residential development called "Pottersville" -- perhaps taken from nearby Potterstown.... Free hot chocolate, lemonade and treats will be available. FREE.

Come for the sale, goodies, music and crafts and stay for a holiday classic with deep Hunterdon roots! Our holiday gift to you!

Main Branch, Hunterdon County Library, Route 12. Festivities start at 10 am and end at 4:30 pm.
