CEMETERY WALKING TOUR OF FRENCHTOWN WITH RICK EPSTEIN: 
The Cemetery Tour stops at the pink granite monument to the victims of the spinal-meningitis outbreak of 1907, and at the graves of combat casualties, captains of industry, the mayor who arrived with the circus, a man who swam away from the Milford train wreck of 1877, a bottler of patent medicine, the man who owned Uhlerstown, Pa., Miss Frenchtown of 1931, Frenchtown's only woman mayor, the Man Who Worked One Day a Year, and many, many more. Metal grave markers and Victorian symbolism will be explained.
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.
