Yesterday, I was in my (former) hometown of Princeton. I used to live about two miles from Albert Einstein’s house located at 112 Mercer Street. He bought this house in 1935 and lived in it until he died in 1955. The house is located near the Institute of Advanced Study where he worked doing research. Einstein also lectured at Princeton University. The house is a private residence and owned by the Institute of Advanced Study. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places as well as a U.S. National Historic Landmark. Swipe left for a 10-second video. Unfortunately, I filmed it at the height of rush hour (5:35 pm) so cars are zipping by. Princeton is 52 miles from NYC. Take a train from NYC/Penn Station to Princeton Junction Train Station and then take the “Dinky” to Princeton Borough. From there it’s about a one-mile walk to Einstein’s house. From Philadelphia, Princeton is 45 miles. ———————————————————————

In March of 1778 Salem County was invaded by a British foraging expedition sent from Philadelphia while local militia organized to defend their homes. At Quinton's Bridge March 18th, the militia was barely able to fend off the British advance over Alloway Creek, and just three days later Captain Sheppard's company, guarding the passage over Hancock's Bridge, was surprised by the Queen's Rangers and "massacred". After this resistance faded, leaving the county open to plunder. The British eventually left and Salem was at peace once again.  Join is at the Hancock House State Historic Site - 3 Front Street, Hancock Bridge, NJ - on Saturday March 23rd and Sunday March 24th where the #reenactment #militia will form to repel the British once again!  Activities will include: military encampments, musket and drill demonstrations, tours of the house and guided tours of Quinton's Bridge #battlesite (3:30 pm)  The Salem County Historical Society open on Saturday 12pm-4pm, please stop by and tour our new #museum exhibits. #salemcountynj #architecture #masonry #brick #travel #traveler #traveling #newjersey #nj #18thcentury #colonial #weekend #wanderlust #landmark #historic #archi_ologie #pattern #architecturephotography #backroads #nationalregistryofhistoricplaces #njhistory #ig_united-states #njhistory #revolutionarywar

❓DID YOU KNOW❓The Club's original clubhouse consisted of part of the gardener's house on the George Innes, Jr. estate on Bay Avenue, while the Club's first nine-hole course extended on both sides of Ridgewood Avenue between Bay Avenue & Baldwin Street. #GRCC125 #tuesdaytrivia

We have learned that the 1840 Victorian home on the corner of Bank and North Main is under renovations.  And in the attic was a wooden box sent to the Rug Mill which will be on display at the Historical Society Museum.  For more pictures of this renovation, visit the Hightstown- East Windsor Historical Society Facebook page.  #njhistory #njpreservation #historichomes #visitnj #hightstown

Happy 101st birthday to our dear friend Ruth Hahn!
.
. 
Ruth was born and raised in a house on Sharrer Road and has lived her entire life in Lebanon Township. Ruth milked cows on the family farm, played kick the can and marbles, attended Mt. Lebanon School and ran barefoot most of the time. From a young age she was very involved with the Mt. Lebanon Grange, her father Eugene Sharrer being its founder. She met her husband, George, during a square dance at the Mt. Lebanon Grange, had two children, nine grandchildren, eleven great-grandchildren and ten great-great grandchildren. She worked as a nurse’s aide at the New Jersey State Sanatorium, as a driver for the Polt Bus Company, and at the egg factory in Flemington. Ruth believes “everything in moderation” is the secret to longevity.
.

Longevity of life is a blessing for an individual and for a community which benefits from the knowledge and experiences this individual brings to all! Happy birthday Ruth!

"Sassy, Saucy, and Celebrated Women of New Jersey"~NJ Women's Heritage Trail

Built in 1855, the Bridget Smith House is the last example of iron miners' housing in Mine Hill, formerly known as "Irishtown" 
Bridget Lockman and her husband John Smith immigrated from Ireland following the Potato Famine in the 1850s. When her husband died, Bridget rented the other side of the house to a fellow Irish widowed woman with  six children. The museum interprets the life of immigrant working women with children during the 1800s. 
The Trust helped fund the stabilization and restoration of the house exterior in 1995.

This past Saturday, the Township of Lebanon Museum and Historians Committee hosted the "Hello/Goodbye to Our Curators" party. It was an opportunity to wish retiring curators Joan Lucas and Deanna Kinney well after more than 50 years of combined service to the Museum. We welcomed the new curator, Gina Sampaio and assistant curator Bill Honachefsky Jr., who are eager to combine their strengths and interests to bring engaging, dynamic, fun and educational programs to the community. Lastly, we celebrated the addition of indoor plumbing to the Museum! Through generous donations, this decades long dream became a reality when ground was broken in October 2018. We couldn't be more excited and grateful. Congressman Tom Malinowski was able to join us on this momentous day and took part in the ribbon cutting ceremony.

Many thanks to all who came out to help celebrate this amazing treasure in Lebanon Township!

This past Saturday, the Township of Lebanon Museum and Historians Committee hosted the "Hello/Goodbye to Our Curators" party. It was an opportunity to wish retiring curators Joan Lucas and Deanna Kinney well after more than 50 years of combined service to the Museum. We welcomed the new curator, Gina Sampaio and assistant curator Bill Honachefsky Jr., who are eager to combine their strengths and interests to bring engaging, dynamic, fun and educational programs to the community.

The Great Beds Lighthouse located on the boundary between #NewJersey and #NewYork. It was named after the oyster beds on which it stands and was first lit on November 15, 1880. The last keepers left in 1945 after automation. It was added to the @nationalregisternps in 2008. The #lighthouse was auctioned in 2011 and is now under private ownership. The lighthouse is located at the confluence of the Raritan River and Arthur Kill and can easily be seen from Perth Amboy or Staten Island. The Perth Amboy waterfront is part of the New Jersey Coastal Heritage Trail.

Site of the Hancock Massacre ordered by Simcoe on March 21, 1778. Some say the ghosts of slain patriots still walk the grounds.

The @ProprietaryHouse in Perth Amboy, #NewJersey is the only proprietary governor's mansion of the original Thirteen Colonies still standing. Construction began in 1762 and was completed in 1764. The house was first occupied by Chief Justice Frederick Smyth by rent and approval of "The Proprietors" from 1766 to 1773. From 1774 to 1776, William Franklin, the Royal Governor of New Jersey, occupied the house. Between 1809 and 1817 (and a short stint in the early 1880s), it was the Brighton #Hotel. It later served as a private mansion, a retirement home, and a boarding house. Restoration efforts began in 1904 and continue to this day. The home is now a #museum. It was added to the @nationalregisternps in 1971.

Sooooooo many times we drive past the sign for the John Inskeep House but have never taken the tour. Today we took the tour and were surprised by how in depth and well done it was. If you’re from the area, there is a lot of local history and photos, etc. Jamie and I went up a nerd level today when we decided to become members of the Evesham Historical Society today after our tour. #njspots #ScenicNJ  #njisntboring  #discovernj  #southjerseyadventures  #optoutside  #greettheoutdoors #just_newjersey  #sjshowus  #jerseycollective  #visitsouthjersey #southjerseyphotographer #njdotcom #njshooterz #njmonthly #jerseygrammers  #ipulledoverforthis  #explorenj #picoftheday  #now_jersey  #MySouthJersey #agameoftones #allthingsnj  #instagood #njisbeautiful #news12nj #njnature  #njhistory #nerds

A gorgeous GREEN Dedham in honor of St. Patrick’s Day from the museum’s pottery collection.

Made by Hugh Robertson at Dedham Pottery between 1895-1908.

Though often referred to as “experimental,” Roberson produced many of these hand-thrown pieces with unctuous, frothy glazes. The deep green is likely the result of a copper glaze fired in an oxidizing environment.

Earlier this week, staff at Ringwood Manor prepared and loaded up three paintings from the collection, which are going out on loan to the Clifton Arts Center in support of their upcoming exhibit, "Picturing Open Spaces and Places." Artwork from Ringwood Manor and Passaic County Historical Society- Lambert Castle will be displayed that depict various locations throughout Passaic County to help visitors appreciate preservation and conservation of natural resources throughout the area. The exhibit opens on April 10th and runs through June 29th. While some of our walls will be blank for a little while, it's a great opportunity to showcase the art of Ringwood Manor to new audiences and we couldn't be prouder to have been asked to contribute to the exhibit! #ringwoodmanor #ringwoodstatepark #picturingopenspacesandplaces #cliftonartcenter #passaiccountyhistoricalsociety #art #artofpassaiccounty #artexhibit #historicart #exhibition #paintings #historicpaintings #njhistory #njhistoricsite #historypartnerships #artorganizationpartnerships

I had such an awesome time this past weekend at the 14th annual Lines on the Pines show! I felt so blessed to have the opportunity to meet so many amazing people. I had so many incredible conversations.
.
This was the 14th annual show and as newcomer I couldn't have felt more welcomed. Linda who started and runs the show is so passionate about it and her love of the Pinelands that it is infectious. She has really built a beautiful community and I was so grateful to be a part of it.
.
One of the highlights of the day was having the booth next to @angelsinthepinesgoatfarm . Joanne was so friendly, and let me snuggle with her baby goats during the show. I was lucky enough to be there when sweet little Confetti met Alma the Great Dane who is a crisis response dog.
.
I was also very excited to meet some of the wonderful workers from @whitesbogpreservation since it has quickly became one of my favorite places to explore. They were so sweet and encouraging. Terry is the chairman of the gallery who had a booth with beautiful paintings. She was so sweet and funny. I can't wait to take my kids to Makers Day there next weekend!

I had such an awesome time this past weekend at the 14th annual Lines on the Pines show! I felt so blessed to have the opportunity to meet so many amazing people. I had so many incredible conversations. . This was the 14th annual show and as newcomer I couldn't have felt more welcomed. Linda who started and runs the show is so passionate about it and her love of the Pinelands that it is infectious. She has really built a beautiful community and I was so grateful to be a part of it. . One of the highlights of the day was having the booth next to @angelsinthepinesgoatfarm . Joanne was so friendly, and let me snuggle with her baby goats during the show. I was lucky enough to be there when sweet little Confetti met Alma the Great Dane who is a crisis response dog. . I was also very excited to meet some of the wonderful workers from @whitesbogpreservation since it has quickly became one of my favorite places to explore. They were so sweet and encouraging.

This week for #5womenartists we feature Martha Brooks Hutchinson. 
Martha Brooks Hutchinson, one of America's first landscape artists, attended the New York School of Applied Design for Women and Massachusetts Institute of Technology's School of Architecture and Planning, before opening her own offices in 1901 to design gardens. Born in 1871 to a family of avid gardeners, her home, Merchiston Farm, now known as Bamboo Brook Outdoor Education Center, part of the Morris County Park Commission. Martha actively promoted many landscape-relates progressive causes, such as the Women's Land Army of America, which alleviated the shortage of farm labor during WWI by employing "farmerettes"  she was also a member of the Garden club in Somerset Hills and the Society of Landscape Architects.

Her book, the Spirit of the Garden, published in 1923, explains her design philosophy and principles, encouraging readers to unify house, garden, and landscape. Martha's daughter donated the property in 1972, allowing Bamboo Brook to be part of more than 1000 acres of preserved Morris County Parkland along the Black River. Many of h3r original sketches and finished drawings are in the Park Commission's archive, including the one seen here of leaf drawings.

Martha Brookes Hutchinson--writer, designer, photographer, advocate--definitely a woman artist to be celebrated during Women's History Month.

The Botto House, now home to the American Labor Museum, once belonged to Maria Botto. Maria was an immigrant silk worker who's house became the popular meeting place for the 1913 Paterson Silk Strike. She also hosted the International Workers of the World leaders, who addressed thousands of laborers from the house's balcony.

Today, the Museum offers insight into the history of the work/workers, the labor movement, and the immigrant American work experience in the United States.

.
Place: Engine Company No. 2 
Location: #Hoboken
Year Built: 1890
Architectural Style: Romanesque Revival
Architect: French, Dixon + DeSaldern

Hitting theaters today is the 21st century take on a classic mystery novel series - Nancy Drew and the Hidden Staircase. This movie stars @sophialillis as Nancy Drew and is based on the 1930 book of the same name.
*
"Carolyn Keene" is credited as the author of the book, but this was a pseudonym used to hide the name's of the many ghostwriters for the Nancy Drew series. The original idea for the character Nancy Drew was created by Edward Stratemeyer, who ran the publishing group known as the Stratemeyer Syndicate. Edward and his Syndicate produced a publishing empire in the early 1900s by selling over 500 million books and created multiple hit series - including Nancy Drew, the Bobbsey Twins and the Hardy Boys.
*
Edward passed away in 1930 and left his empire to his daughters, Harriet Adams  and Edna Squier. Harriet, a long time resident of Tewksbury Township, wrote for the Syndicate and was already involved in the publishing side before her father's death. Edna eventually gave her ownership rights to Harriet, and under Harriet's direction the Syndicate continued to thrive.
*
During her life Harriet claimed to have written all of the Nancy Drew books, however this is doubtful. The Stratemeyer Syndicate required their ghostwriters to remain anonymous, but Mildred Wirt Benson may have been the writer for The Hidden Staircase - as she has since been credited with writing 23 of the first 30 Nancy Drew books.
*
Whether or not Harriet wrote this particular book, her impact on the Nancy Drew series can still be seen today. In 1959 Harriet edited and rewrote many of the early books. She tweaked Nancy Drew's personality, but also removed offensive racial stereotypes from the books.
*
Harriet lived much of her life on her farm named Bird Haven in Pottersville (pic 3). The farm features old barns and stone buildings - which I'm guessing helped inspire some Nancy Drew stories. The current owners of the farm have a beautiful garden and occasionally have open tours to the public. If anyone has ever been there please tell me about it in the comments!
*
In 1982 Harriet passed away after running the Stratemeyer Syndicate for 52 years.

Today is National Ag Day, a day set aside to celebrate and recognize the contributions of agriculture. Lebanon Township is home to many farm families who have stood the test of time and made valuable contributions to the industry and our community. If you haven’t already seen it, "Where Have All The Farmers Gone", a poignant production by Lebanon Township resident Tom Bleck, is available to borrow through the Hunterdon County Library system. This is a must-see documentary about the changes in farming and agriculture in Hunterdon County. While it’s important to celebrate our farmers everyday, today we throw an extra bright spotlight on the industry. Farmers know and understand how things we eat, wear and use originate from farms and ranches around the world. But as the general population moves further and further from the farm and rural life, it doesn't hurt to have a reminder that what they do impacts everyone.

#tbt from the Passaic County Park Commission files, the Dey Mansion site, a view looking towards the forge and spring house. During the 1960s, the site had farm animals and demonstrations on what it was like to work the Dey property. Something though is missing here! Can you guess what is missing in this photo....? #deymansion #njhistory #passaiccounty #waynenj #richhistorybrightfuture
