The Historical Society of Moorestown Holds General Meeting Thursday, October 13
(Moorestown, NJ) The Historical Society of Moorestown holds its annual General Meeting on October 13, 2011. The meeting, which is open to all, will feature Debbie Hess as guest speaker on farm life in Moorestown.
The Historical Society is promoting a special exhibit at their home in the Smith-Cadbury Mansion. Titled Farm Life in Moorestown, the exhibit explores seven notable farm businesses in Moorestown’s past. Debbie Hess has roots in one of them: the Browning-Hess farm on Lenola Road. The Township recently agreed to terms to preserve the farm from further development.
Lisa Hammell, President of the Historical Society says: “We are always looking for a unique story to tell from Moorestown’s past. This year is no exception. Debbie has a special link to the rich history of Moorestown with her family’s farm. Moorestown has some great stories surrounding these farms, and Debbie is here in-person to tell us about hers."
The Historical Society of Moorestown’s mission is to preserve and educate the community about the deep history of the town. And with origins in the seventeenth century, there’s plenty to know. The Society welcomes visitors weekly at the Smith-Cadbury Mansion at 12 High Street in Moorestown every Sunday from 1 p.m. – 4 p.m. Visitors will get a guided tour from one of the resident docents. The Society has special exhibits throughout the year. The Society also features some special events, such has their popular Ghost Tours in October.
The General Meeting will be Thursday, October 13 at 7:30 p.m. The Moorestown Community House is at 16 East Main Street in Moorestown. For more information, go to http://www.noonmarkantiques.com/
