“Time & Again” House Tour 2014
History will be only a step away on Sunday, October 26, 2014,
when the Hightstown-East Windsor Historical Society will sponsor a self-guided tour titled “Time & Again”. Six area homes, noted for their charm and local significance, will open their doors from 1p.m. to 5 p.m.. Docents will be on hand to offer information about these houses, their furnishings, and their history. All of the homes have been preserved, refurbished, or renovated and present a variety of styles representative of New Jersey history. Antique cars will be at each of the houses as well. Rocky Brook Garden Club will be providing floral arrangements for each home.
The tour is being held as a fundraiser to help the historical society maintain Ely House and update its library. The Ely House stands on land originally settled in 1721 by John and Mary Hight. It houses a museum and reference library in the Sara Hutchinson West Educational Center freight station behind the house.
