Isaac Watson House Rededication
Sunday, September 10, 2017 at 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
The New Jersey State Society of the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution (NJDAR) invites you to join in the celebration as they rededicate their headquarters, the Isaac Watson House, after a $50,000 renovation.
Built on a bluff overlooking Watson’s Creek in Hamilton, the Isaac Watson House was built in 1708 and is now within John A. Roebling Park, a 257-acre nature preserve. It is recognized to be the oldest house in Mercer County and was first restored by NJDAR in 1964 as part of the New Jersey Tercentenary Celebration.
Isaac Watson was the son of Quakers who came to this country from England in 1684. The furniture now displayed in this fine stone house antedates 1790, and several pieces were made by New Jersey craftsmen. In addition, many articles in the home were donated by New Jersey DAR members.
Watson House is open to the public for docent-guided tours each spring and fall from 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM on the second Sunday of April, May, June, September, October and November. Those planning to tour Watson House should wear sneakers or flat rubber-soled shoes — high heels are not permitted.
