Caldwell Parsonage Open House
Saturday, October 17, 2020 at 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 12:00 pm, repeating until Sunday, October 18, 2020
On Saturday, October 17, and Sunday, October 18, from 12 noon to 5 pm, the Union Township Historical Society will host open houses at Caldwell Parsonage.
Rev. James Caldwell (portrayed by first-person interpreter Doc Burkhardt) will greet visitors to his home on Saturday. The Tool Museum in the adjacent carriage house will be included in the tour.
Although Four Centuries in a Weekend will not be coordinated by Union County this year, the UTHS board is continuing the decades-long tradition of opening to the public for free. This year’s event will feature a new exhibit of ten historic Union documents archivally preserved, partially through a grant from the Union County Office of Cultural and Heritage Affairs.
The following guidelines will be observed:
- masks required;
- social distancing outside on walkway and lawn;
- social distancing inside;
- visitors must sign in with email address;
- temperature checks;
- portable UV sanitizing wand for surfaces;
- hand-sanitizer available.
The UTHS had to cancel tours in March, July, and August and programs in April, May, and September. Each of those would have produced much needed revenue for the centuries-old house. It’s hoped that members of the community would consider an in-person contribution or an on-line donation at unionnjhistory.org.
