WALKING TOUR OF DOWNTOWN FRENCHTOWN WITH RICK EPSTEIN:
The Downtown Tour covers the Great Fire of 1878; visits by Annie Oakley, Mary Tyler Moore and Aaron Burr; the old hotels and movie theaters; the wagon-wheel factories; the chicken hatcheries; the future site of the ArtYard theater and gallery; logging on the Delaware in the 1800s; and how Frenchtown's founder escaped the guillotine in 1794 and gave the town its name.
Rick Epstein started gathering Frenchtown history when he was editor of the Frenchtown's Delaware Valley News in 1970s and '80s, interviewing old-timers for the newspaper. He soaked up more history as editor of the Hunterdon County Democrat, and intensified his research more recently to begin his historical tours in 2016. He currently reports on Frenchtown for the Bucks County Herald.
