Warren County’s two museums located at historic Morris Canal sites are open this Sunday, September 11. Stop by and learn why you keep seeing the brown “Morris Canal Crossed Here” signs around the county (how did they get the boats up and down these hills?) as volunteers will be there to welcome you and answer any questions.
The Jim and Mary Lee Museum is located at 477 Route 519, Stewartsville. This unique museum is located in a former Morris Canal plane tender’s house at Inclined Plane 9 West. Visitors can view artifacts in the museum, then walk the inclined plane, and tour the remains of the powerhouse, turbine chamber and 165-foot tailrace tunnel located 25 feet underground. Guided tours are offered at 1pm, 2pm and 3pm.
While you are there, enjoy a walk around the park!
Meanwhile, did you know that Washington was world-renowned for producing some of the finest organs and pianos? Stop by on Sunday and see for yourself!

The museum features displays that interpret history along the Warren Heritage Scenic Byway, a state-designated scenic corridor from the Delaware River at Phillipsburg, through Hackettstown and Allamuchy to the historic Waterloo Village.
