Winter Kitchen
Children Friendly

On Saturday, Howell Farm’s circa 1900 kitchen will be open to the public in the farm house, offering visitors a chance to experience sights, smells and tastes of a bygone era. Cooking activities, recipe sampling and hands-on experiences are planned for all.

During the morning, a restored Glenwood Stove will be used to prepare a meal that farmers would have had for their noontime dinner. In the afternoon, we’ll be baking “goodies” in the wood stove oven. The menu features recipes from the Pleasant Valley Historic District.

Visitors young and old will have opportunities to help in the kitchen...doing everything from collecting wood for the fire to churning butter. Those visitors who want to help outside the kitchen can contribute by gathering eggs from the henhouse for baking, splitting wood, and gathering kindling to keep the stove going. Inside help will be needed to prepare the vegetables, peel apples, wash dishes and make biscuits. Helpers can also darn socks, help repair the horse blanket and crochet or knit.

Open hearth cooking demostrations will be held in the John Phillips House as well.

Howell Living Farm represents typical farm life between 1890 and 1910. The farm is operated by the Mercer County Parks Commission. It is located at 70 Wooden's Lane, Lambertville, NJ. For more information. call 609-737-3299 or visit www.howellfarm.org.

Meet American Heroine Harriet Tubman
Family Friendly

“I was the conductor of the Underground Railroad for eight years, and I can say what most conductors can't say — I never ran my train off the track and I never lost a passenger,” said Harriet Tubman in 1896. Ms. Tubman’s story – as an enslaved person who escaped and became an abolitionist, humanitarian, and armed Union scout and spy during the Civil War – is an American legend. But what was this American icon really like? In honor of Women’s History Month, the Durand-Hedden House presents inspiring actress and educator Dr. Daisy Century of the American Historical Theater who will bring this remarkable woman to life through her vivid historical interpretation.

Harriet Tubman is a role model for Dr. Century, someone who encouraged her to put others first and to lead by example. Like her inspiration, Dr. Century grew up on a farm, has a wonderful singing voice, and is a determined woman of conviction. A naturally talented teacher and actor with a PhD in Science Education, she couples scientific methods with creative imagination to make her historical portrayals thoroughly researched and dramatically intense.

This entertaining and educational event will take place in the Jefferson School auditorium (518 Ridgewood Road, Maplewood, NJ) directly across the street from the Durand-Hedden House (523 Ridgewood Road, Maplewood, NJ). The door on the Virginia Road side of the school will open at 1:30 pm and the presentation will begin at 2:00 pm.

Afterwards, light refreshments will be served at Durand-Hedden. The Country Store will be open until 5:00 pm, offering hard-to-find books, posters, toys, decorative items and maps that people have come to love. The exhibit on the history of the College Hill neighborhood, From Farm to Suburb: The Birth of College Hill. which explores the evolution of a section of Maplewood from a dairy farm to a popular neighborhood of 300 houses, will also be on view at the House.

The event is free. Donations are appreciated. Durand-Hedden House is dedicated to telling the history of the development of Maplewood, New Jersey and the surrounding area in new and engaging ways. It is located in Grasmere Park at 523 Ridgewood Road in Maplewood, New Jersey. For more information, call 973-763-7712, visit www.durandhedden.org, and visit them on Facebook.

Bruce Springsteen: A Photographic Journey

Like Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger, and Bob Dylan before him, Bruce Springsteen is a pillar of American music. Springsteen has turned his guitar into an instrument of change, using it to tap into the American psyche and connect with the blue-collar man and woman through his melodies and lyrics. From his humble beginnings of rehearsing in New Jersey garages to selling out arenas around the world, Springsteen's career has spanned decades and crossed genres-and has never wavered from its upward trajectory.

This fall, Morven Museum & Garden presents Bruce Springsteen: A Photographic Journey. Traveling from the GRAMMY Museum in Los Angeles, this exhibition features forty photographs of the rock legend and video interviews with five of the six noted photographers: Danny Clinch, Ed Gallucci, Eric Meola, Barry Schneier, Pamela Springsteen, and Frank Stefanko. Together they revisit Springsteen's career as a frontman and songwriter, capturing his charisma and off-stage vulnerability.

The exhibition is on view from November 18, 2016 through May 21, 2017 at Morven Museum & Garden, 55 Stockton Street, Princeton, NJ. Hours: Wednesday - Sunday 10:00 am - 4:00 pm. For more information, call 609-924-8144 or visit www.morven.org.

Through June 2017 - Ocean Township, Monmouth County
Presidents at the Monmouth County Shore Exhibit

One hundred years ago this September, 25,000 people gathered on the grounds of what is today Monmouth University—then a private estate called Shadow Lawn—to see Woodrow Wilson officially accept the nomination of the Democratic Party for a second Presidential run. Wilson was following a popular tradition among American Presidents to retreat to our slice of the Jersey Shore to escape the heat and hubbub of Washington. At the Eden Woolley House, this major exhibit tells the wide-ranging stories of eleven Presidents who spent time here, at the Monmouth County shore.

Mrs. Lincoln got the ball rolling
There’s a case to be made that it all started with Mary Todd Lincoln. Mrs. Lincoln travelled to Long Branch in the summer of 1861, probably at the invitation of William Newell, family friend and then supervisor of the life-saving services in New Jersey. Long Branch was already a popular resort, and national coverage of the First Lady’s visit added immeasurably to its fame and appeal.

That fame and appeal continued to draw the wealthy and influential—including the seven presidents who vacationed in resort city, starting with Ulysses Grant.

Seven Presidents in Long Branch
In 1870, a group of wealthy businessmen who summered in the Elberon section of Long Branch presented President Grant with an oceanfront cottage where he vacationed for the next 15 years. When Grant died in 1885, city officials feared the resort might lose its cachet. They needn’t have worried. Six of the next ten Presidents--Hayes, Garfield, Arthur, Harrison, McKinley, and Wilson--chose to spend time in Long Branch.

The most tragic of these Presidential visits was James Garfield’s last. Mrs. Garfield was in Long Branch recuperating from illness, when, on July 2, 1881, Garfield was shot by an assassin in the Washington train station. He was taken to the White House, where his condition worsened. In hope the sea air might help, Garfield was taken to Elberon. Famously, locals worked through the night to build the spur to carry the President’s railroad car from Elberon Station to the ocean side cottage. He died there 12 days later, September 19.

Beyond Long Branch
Long Branch was not the only Monmouth County destination of Presidents. Teddy Roosevelt, FDR, and Richard Nixon visited our area, if only, in some cases, for a political rally. And then, of course, there’s Warren Harding, whose local connection was a bit less public and a good deal more scandalous. Join us June 26 to learn the full story. The new exhibit is on view through June 2017.

The Township of Ocean Historical Museum offers exhibits on the history of coastal Monmouth County and a full calendar of events. The Museum also houses a library and archive of local history. It is open, free of charge, 1:00 - 4:00 pm, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursday, 7:00 - 9:00 pm Thursday evenings, and 1:00 - 4:00 pm the first and second Sundays of each month. The Township of Ocean Historical Museum is located at 703 Deal Road, Ocean, NJ.

Garden State: Living Off the Land in Early New Jersey Exhibit
Family Friendly

How far is the distance from farm to table? For families in early New Jersey it was measured in inches.

The exhibit also features a new generation of Garden State farmers who are working to make the distance from farm to table a little bit shorter for today’s families.
