Sunday, June 7 - Union Township, Union County
Hannah Caldwell Day

Hannah Caldwell Day will be commemorated by the Union Township Historical Society at the Caldwell Parsonage, 909 Caldwell Avenue, Union, on Sunday from 2:00 - 5:00 pm. Rev. James Caldwell, portrayed by Doc Burkhardt, will greet visitors. He'll recall the heroism of his wife during the American Revolution, following the Battle of Connecticut Farms on that fateful day - June 7, 1780.

Observance of current social-distancing guidelines will make this a historic first for the Union Township Historical Society, which was founded in 1957. Entrance to the museum will be restricted to one individual or one couple or one family at a time to take a self-guided tour for ten minutes. Gloves will be provided, but guests are requested to bring and wear their own masks.

The UTHS was required to cancel tours in March and programs in April and May. Each of those would have produced much needed revenue for the centuries-old house. It is hoped that members of the community would consider an in-person contribution or an online donation at For more information, call 908-591-4377.
