Hannah Caldwell Day at Caldwell Parsonage in Union
Sunday, June 9, 2019 at 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Hannah Caldwell Day (June 7) will be commemorated at the Caldwell Parsonage, 909 Caldwell Avenue, Union, on Sunday, June 9, from 2 to 5 pm. Members of the Union High School History Club, along with Union Township Historical Society members in colonial costume, will host an open house of the Parsonage, as well as tours of the Union Tool Museum in the adjacent carriage house (barn).
There will be photo ops for children with prop tricorn hats and colonial-style bonnets; and kids can make “church” dolls and play colonial games.
“Rev. James Caldwell,” portrayed by Doc Burkhardt, will greet visitors and recall the heroism of his wife during the American Revolution, specifically the Battle of Connecticut Farms on that fateful day in 1780.
Collect Union County’s Hannah Caldwell, James Caldwell, and Battle of Connecticut Farms trading cards. Get National Park Service Passport and/or Union County Passport booklet and have it stamped–the Parsonage is part of the Crossroads of the American Revolution National Heritage Area and an official cancellation location.
Refreshments will be served. Admission is free. Souvenirs will be available for purchase.
