THE LOWERY'S TOWN & COUNTRY: A TALK AND GRAVEYARD TOUR IN THE COUNTRY
The first of a two part special event Revolutionary series called THE LOWERYS TOWN & COUNTRY. Our first part brings us to historic Kingwood Towship with a talk a tour by Kingwood Township Historian, Sal DeSapio. We meet at the Old Stone Meeting House, located at the corner of Route 519 and Oak Summit Road for a talk on the history of area where, in December 1778, the Continental Army camped while moving prisoners to Virginia. Following the talk, Sal escorted us to the historic Oak Summit School, a one room school house built in 1754, that has been preserved, and then to the Oak Summit Cemetery, where the Lowrey family is buried. This cemetery contains the remains of at least four Civil War Veterans and five veterans of the American Revolution. When we returned to the Church, we enjoyed special 18th century style treats made by our great friends at Teaberrys Tea Room in Flemington as a preview to our second half of the series on October 16, 2016 "The Lowery's Town & Country: A British High Tea in Town" at Teaberry's Tea Room.
