WALKING TOUR OF POTTERSVILLE
We’ll learn about how the town that sits in 3 counties and 4 municipalities got its name.  Pottersville was listed on the National & State Registers of Historic Places in 1990.  It contains 44 major buildings that contribute to its historic character and embody its architectural significance.  They range from the mid-1800s through the early 1900s.  We’ll see key buildings that were vital to the village, including the upper mill, Church, school, stores and hotel, and we’ll see that a great majority of the houses still retain their historic character.
Tour length:  90 minutes

WALKING TOUR OF UPTOWN FRENCHTOWN WITH RICK EPSTEIN:
The Uptown Tour includes the old Frenchtown High School, the former residence of its original terrier mascot, the old doll-carriage factory, Doc Mullins' hospital, the Doughboy statue, the Barn Theater, the homes of Frenchtown's first automobile owner and its first radio owner, homes of the Frenchtown-famous, and a love story that began on the railroad tracks in 1942.
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.
