Tewksbury Barn Tour
Sunday, July 24, 2022 at 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
The 12th biennial Tewksbury Barn Tour, co-sponsored by the Tewksbury Historical Society and Tewksbury Trail Association, will be held this year on Sunday, July 24 from 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m., rain or shine.
Six barns located throughout Tewksbury Township and the surrounding area will be showcased. Bank barns and Post and Beam barns, dating from the 19th and 20th centuries, are among the group. A 19th century barn was moved to its present site from a nearby location. It’s origins as a dairy barn are still in evidence. A 19th century dual purpose barn originally contained a smoke house and a milk house. Another 19th century barn sat on 500 acres,but saw the farm sub-divided over the years. Its acreage has now been reclaimed and the property sits in the Farmland Preservation Program. A modified 20th century Bank barn sits on land that was part of a 5000-acre estate spanning Hunterdon, Somerset and Morris counties. A 20th century barn, currently used as a Party Barn, served as a notable site in the history of Tewksbury during the past century. A magnificent equestrian facility, built recently, is located on 390 acres.
