The staff at Ringwood Manor is thrilled to once again announce the details for the annual Declaration of Independence celebration! Monday, July 4, 2016 marks the event's 17th year, having become an exciting and educational tradition for many families in the northern New Jersey area. The highlight of the event is a dramatic delivery and reading of the Declaration of Independence on the steps of the Manors porch along with colonial crafters, activities, and demonstrations. The front lawn of the Manor is transformed into a colonial town square with Revolutionary War reenactors from New Jersey Militia- Heards Brigade, the 35th Royal Sussex Regiment, Outwaters Militia, the Friends of Long Pond Ironworks, and individual volunteers. All help to celebrate the 240th anniversary of American independence and bringing the historic experience to life.
