IT MAKES A VILLAGE
2019 Opening Talk on the theme "Celebrating 305 Year's Of Hunterdon's Historic Hometowns and Hamlets"
Or does it make a hamlet?  Or a small town?  Or a borough?  And what exactly is "IT"?  What did it really take to make a settlement a settlement in our 18th and 19th centuries?  Then for it to thrive... and to survive.   A river?  A church?  A road?  A tavern?  Why did some remain viable and grow, while others all but disappeared?  Discover the logical and sometimes surprising ingredients that created our early Hunterdon hamlets and villages when Marilyn Cummings takes us on a nostalgic journey into Hunterdon's past, which remarkably is often our present as well!

IF THESE STONES COULD TALK
Join us as we celebrate Black History Month with this wonderful talk and book-signing by local authors Beverly Mills and Elaine Buck as they present "If These Stones Could Talk:  African American Presence in the Hopewell Valley, Sourland Mountain, and Surrounding Region of New Jersey" -- a compelling group of stories about a Black minority  in a predominantly White region.  It provides a unique window to this little known part of history here in rural New Jersey - hamlets and hometowns that were once all part of Hunterdon County and, up until now, missing from the historical record.  Beverly Mills is the first African American woman to be elected to the Council in Pennington Borough and Elaine Buck is Church Clerk for the Second Calvary Baptist Church of Hopewell.
