PATH TO PRESERVATION: Self-Guided Tour of Four Local Historical Sites Presented by Lebanon Township Museum

Early autumn’s the perfect time for taking a drive through winding country roads and learning some local history along the way! Get a taste of the past at your own pace with the Path to Preservation self-guided tour, a free and fun activity for all ages. Pick up a passport (available at all participating locations) and travel to the local destinations, each representing different aspects of historic life  (industry, education, religion, agriculture, home) as well as varying stages of site preservation.
 
The locations are the Asbury Graphite Mill (industry), the Lebanon Township Museum (education), the Mount Lebanon Church/Grange (both religion and agriculture) and the Solitude House (home). There is no particular order to visit the sites in; however, the suggested and most scenic route would be to go in the order listed above (or in reverse).

Visit the Lebanon Township Museum Website for more information.

Quakertown Friends Meeting will hold a dedication ceremony for an historic marker that honors the Nixon Cemetery, a burial site for non-Quakers that the Meeting offered to the community in the mid-1700s.

The dedication ceremony will include several speakers. Talks will encompass the history of the two cemetery sites, the importance of preserving cemeteries, and remembrances of the deceased.

A SAMPLING OF HUNTERDON COUNTY NEEDLEWORK WIHT MARTY CAMPANELLI, INDEPENDENT TEXTILE SCHOLAR

As a fairly rural farming community in the late 1700s and early 1800s, Hunterdon County, New Jersey was surprisingly home to a number of diverse sampler groups. Join Marty Campanelli as she takes you on a tour of the County's various sampler styles including the now recognized 'collared deer' school, Eliza Rue's School in Pennington, the 'Redington' School, and the 'Hunterdon House & Heart' samplers taught by instructresses Amy and Elizabeth Lundy. New research on these groups, the instructresses who taught the designs, and a selection of sampler maker's life stories will round out the lecture. Marty's detective work also will show how some of the designs came to Hunterdon and where they migrated to afterwards. - $20 - Virtual Via ZOOM - visit: Schwenkfelder Library and Heritage Center for more information

Take a walking tour of downtown Ringoes and discover its rich history. Our tour guide is Dave Harding, former Hunterdon County Historical Society trustee, founding member of the East Amwell Historical Society, and author of a self-guided walking tour of Ringoes. Dave will tell us about John Ringo’s arrival in the early 1700s where he became a reluctant tavern owner, and discuss the legend of his buried treasure. We'll learn about the Sons of Liberty meeting at the tavern of “the second” John Ringo, an ardent patriot who hung a portrait of George Washington outside his establishment (unless the British were passing through!). We’ll swing past the Henry Landis House where the Marquis de LaFayette convalesced after falling ill, and we’ll talk about the local doctor who rushed to his aid. Speaking of doctors, we’ll also tell you all about Dr. Mary Tidd Bennett, the town’s rare 1800s female physician, and we’ll stand beside the home and publishing house of Dr. Cornelius Larison, and discuss this physician, teacher, publisher, author, interviewer of ex-slave Sylvia DuBois and advocate of phonetic spelling. We’ll also learn about the impact of the railroad on the community and what the village looked like a century ago. Join us to learn about the fascinating, historic hamlet.
