Abraham Staats House – free tour/open house
Saturday, October 12, 2019 at 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
An event every month that begins at 10:00 am on day Second of the month, repeating until Saturday, June 13, 2020
The Abraham Staats House is one of the finest surviving buildings from the Dutch Settlement of the Raritan Valley in the 18th century. It began life as a two-room structure housing the first owners, the Staats family, who remained at the homestead for nearly two centuries. Over the centuries the house has been expanded several times and now includes a fine late, Federal/Greek Revival two-story addition.
Visit the open house for free tours on the second Saturday of each month (closed July and August) from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon, when the house is open for free tours. Before visiting, check the Abraham Staats calendar for special events that may be occurring during Open House hours. Past programs have featured 18th c. blacksmithing demonstration, open hearth cooking and live music.
