The Johnson Ferry House at Washington Crossing State Park, New Jersey, cordially invites all interested public to a Washington’s Birthday Celebration, Saturday, February 17 from 1 to 4 pm to commemorate the birthday of our nation’s first president. In the parlor, listen to country fiddle music and find out some well- known and not so well known “Facts and Quotes” about our first Commander in Chief and Founding Father. The History of Gingerbread, one of Washington’s favorite treats, will be presented and baked on the winter kitchen hearth. Colonial education and quill pen writing will be ongoing in the upstairs bedchamber.
Refreshment ginger snaps and punch will be available to all. This is a great family event for school age children and above. Come and go as you like as activities are ongoing.
