10:30 AM

On Saturday, June 18, visitors to Howell Living History Farm can join historical interpreters on a free wagon ride and tour of the circa-1790 farmhouse, where Revolutionary War-era New Jerseyans lived and farmed the land that now makes up Mercer County’s Pleasant Valley National Rural Historic District.

Saturday’s program is being held in observance of Juneteenth, which commemorates the emancipation of enslaved African-Americans. Tours begin at 10:30 a.m. in the barnyard, where visitors will board a wagon to travel down the driveway, across Moore’s Creek and through the woods before disembarking at the Captain Henry Phillips House. There they’ll meet historical interpreters Ivey Avery of Trenton and Pete Curtis of George Washington’s Mount Vernon, who will be wearing period attire for a unique discussion of the history of the house and the people who lived in it before and after the 1804 passage of New Jersey’s Act for the Gradual Abolition of Slavery.
