March 24, 2018, 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM @ Greenbrook Sanctuary
On Saturday morning, March 24, historical PIP interpreter Eric Nelsen will lead a hiking tour through Greenbrook Sanctuary, a cliff-top nature preserve established in Tenafly in 1946. Hike is around 3 miles in about 2 hours on moderate trails through the sometimes rugged terrain of the preserve, which is normally open only to members of Palisades Nature Assoc. and their guests. The hike will explore vestiges of the area’s role as the site of two Civilian Conservation Corps Camps (CCC) during the Great Depression, when the “New Deal” agency put a couple million young men to work on conservation projects across the country, as well as earlier history, including “Falcon Lodge,” the 19th-century summer estate of the Lamb family. The Sanctuary’s entrance is off U.S. Route 9W, 4.7 miles north of the GW Bridge. Non-PNA members are urged to arrive promptly, as entrance gate will be closed shortly after 10 AM. Call the PIP, 201-768-1360 ext.108, to confirm if weather is questionable.
March 24, 2018, 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM @ Meadowlands Museum
On Saturday March 24th, the Meadowlands Museum will host author David Veasey who will give an illustrated talk on his book, "New Jersey's Colonial Architecture Told in 100 Buildings." In this the most crowded and developed state in the union, a substantial number of buildings remain from our colonial past: the Royal Governor’s Mansion in Perth Amboy, the still functioning Black Horse Inn in Mendham, the meetinghouse-style Fairfield Presbyterian Church in Salem County, Nassau Hall on the grounds of Princeton University, Washington’s Headquarters in Morristown, and the Sandy Hook Lighthouse, the oldest lighthouse in the country. And the past isn’t really dead: several of our contemporary architectural styles can trace their roots to the Colonial Era. The Museum is currently open to the public on Wednesdays and Saturdays from 10:00 am until 4:00 pm.
March 24, 2018, 1:00 PM - March 25, 2018, 4:00 PM @ The Hermitage National Historic Landmark
Join us for a three course Afternoon Tea inside the historic Hermitage! Courses include 3 specialty teas, scones, tea sandwiches, and desert. Seating is available for Saturday, March 24th OR Sunday, March 25th at 1:00pm. Reservations are required to attend this event and seating is limited. From 1917 until 1932, Bess Rosencrantz, the owner of the house, and her niece, Mary Elizabeth, ran a successful tea room in the parlors of the Hermitage, entertaining guests from around the world with local legends, folktales, and ghost stories about the historic home and its inhabitants. We invite you to relive the past with us at this very special event. The Gothic Revival historic home is rarely open for a unique opportunity like this. We hope you will join us for a wonderful afternoon!
