Settlement and River Trade Along the Delaware River in the Pre-Canal Period
Tuesday, April 3, 2018 at 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
During the 18th century and well into the 19th century, Durham boats -the boat best known for its use by General George Washington’s troops to cross the river before the Battle of Trenton in 1776- plied the middle and upper Delaware to transport the region’s products to urban markets in exchange for goods not available locally. Join historic preservation expert Dennis Bertland in a talk that is based on a research project that he conducted for the Knowlton Township Historical Commission for the Ramseysburg Homestead, a historic site in Warren County associated with early settlement and trade along the Delaware. Hunterdon County Library Main Branch. 7 pm. Free. Refreshments follow. Reservations recommended.
