The Burlington County Lyceum of History and Natural Sciences Association will host “New Jersey’s Colonial Architecture” on June 11 at 1:00pm at the Burlington County Lyceum. Don’t miss Author David Veasey’s presentation on colonial architecture in Burlington County. Sandwiched between Philadelphia and New York City, Benjamin Franklin’s proverbial barrel tapped at both ends, New Jersey often doesn’t get due credit for its contributions to colonial and early American life, including its rich and diverse architectural heritage. This diverse architecture reflects its early settlers who were the most varied in all the colonies, except perhaps for New York City, coming from The Netherlands, Germany, Sweden, France, Ireland, Scotland, and a number of English regions, with each group bringing their building traditions with them.
David Veasey is a life-long New Jersey resident with a long-time interest in the state’s history and architecture, including its lighthouses and life-saving stations which he wrote a book about, titled: Guarding New Jersey’s Shore Lighthouses and Life-Saving Stations; he also wrote the well received New Jersey Then & Now.
