The exterior of the 1713 East Jersey Cottage is nearly restored.

In collaboration with the Cranbury Chamber of Commerce, CHPS will sponsor a Colonial Fair at the 1713 East Jersey Cottage site.

The Sons of the American Revolution and BSA Troop 52 will open the celebration with the presentation of colors. Mayor Ferrante will share opening remarks. Colonial music and food vendors will be available throughout the afternoon. Colonial games will occur on the fields. Vincent and Ann Bodine, owners of the cottage during the American Revolution, will share their story during the day.
