Spend an afternoon enjoying several of the township’s most enchanting homes when the East Amwell Historical Society conducts its annual holiday house tour on Sunday, Dec. 4.
The tour bus departs from the East Amwell Municipal Building, 1070 US-202 at 1 p.m. Tour space is limited, and this event sells out quickly every year so don’t wait to get your tickets. Cost is $25 per person. For reservations contact Pauline Seramba at [email protected] or at 908-797-9024.
This year’s itinerary includes:
- The New Market Farm, a charming circa 1735-era home that features stunning vistas, and a large barn and wagon house. The farm, which was originally 200 acres, used to harvest and process tomatoes for the Campbell Soup Company.
- “The Farm” on Old York Road, which was built in 1740, and has been beautifully restored by its homeowner of 38 years. The three-story house is elegantly decorated throughout and features a gorgeous backyard view of the Sourland Mountains in the distance and a man-made pond.
- A 1740-era, Dutch gambrel-roofed farm house that offers many original features including Dutch ceiling beams, six fireplaces, trim and doors. Besides the three-story home, the property has several large barns and a pond.
The tour returns to the municipal building where you may drive yourself around the corner to the historic Harvest Moon Inn to enjoy cookies and cider. Stronger libations are available for purchase.
