Good afternoon friends, neighbors and community members.
We are excited to share that our event with the 2nd NJ Reg't (Revolutionary War Day) is still scheduled for this Sun., Sept 12th from 11am to 4pm. This is a family-oriented event that is free to the public.
Unfortunately, the museum's interior is not open to the public at this time. However, our knowledgeable docents & staff will be situated on the museum porches (upper driveway) accessible by the boardwalk where they will be discussing with our visitors the history of our site. The 2nd NJ will be set up in various places along the lower driveway and porch. There is also a port-a-john on site for our visitors.
Firing demonstrations & schedule of events will be announced.
In addition, displays will be set up in the windows along the upper driveway for our visitors that pertain to our Revolutionary War history.
On-site parking is always tricky at Shippen due to the nature of our location. There is accessible parking reserved in our Belvidere Ave. lot. For all others, there is parking availability on Washington Ave (past the stone church into town), Wall Street (depending upon the parking limitations, please review signs), and in the municipal lot accessed from Wall Street (turn by "In the Nick of Time" tailors). Please check the street signs for parking limitations.
Also, while parking, please avoid blocking the entrance and exit (upper and lower driveways).
Important: There has been some damage to our driveways due to T.S. Ida. Please exercise caution while walking as there are some washed out areas that will be marked with cones.
