10:00 AM

A walking tour of downtown Frenchtown on Saturday, July 13, at 10 a.m. will benefit the Hunterdon County Historical Society. It will be conducted by borough historian Rick Epstein, author of Frenchtown: Fires, Floods, Fads & Felonies and an HCHS trustee. The tour will cover the Great Fire of 1878, Inky the Wonder Dog, Senator Martin’s alligators, secret societies, how Fred Sipes created buzz for his silent-movie theater, how the guillotine inspired Frenchtown’s founder to come here and do some founding, and why Aaron Burr wanted to visit Frenchtown (but didn’t).

The tour costs $20 but is free for teenagers. Dogs are wonderful creatures, especially yours, but please keep them home. If you are interested, please register by emailing Rick at rickepstein@yahoo.com and he’ll tell you where to meet up.
