Join us in celebrating George Washington’s Birthday. In the early 1800’s there was no holidays that the new nation could bond over more so than George Washington’s Birthday. There were dances and festivities in almost every town. Join the workers and their families of the Howell Iron Works in a day of celebration! There will be a special reenactment in the Chapel at 1pm. There will be hearth cooking demonstrations, craft demonstrations, and house tours! This event is a great time to get out of the house during winter and explore the village!
The Historic Village at Allaire, the non profit living history museum receives no funding from the State of New Jersey and so relies on donations, admissions, and purchases made at the General Store and Bakery to continue teaching the public about life in New Jersey in 1836
