Please, join Middlesex County as it celebrates History Day at East Jersey Old Town Village on May 14 from 10 am-4 pm. Attached please find a flyer that can be used to promote this event.
History Day will take place at East Jersey Old Town Village which is comprised of reconstructed and replica 18th and 19th century structures that represent architecture typical of farm and merchant communities once found in the Raritan Valley. Buildings include a tavern, blacksmith shop, wheelwright shop, schoolhouse, barracks, church, the homes of early settlers, and other outbuildings. There will be a variety of family-friendly activities going on that day, including vintage baseball, Revolutionary and Civil War soldiers, historic gardening and agriculture, stone carving, our 19th Century Print Shop will be open, home and hearth demonstrations, music, horse-drawn wagon rides through Johnson Park, food trucks, children’s crafts, and much more.
In partnership with REPLENISH, the East Jersey Old Town Village will also be collecting nutritious food for residents in need. If you would like to help, please bring a non-perishable food item when attending the History Day event.
