On Saturday, Howell Farm’s 2021 wheat sheaves will be fully dried and ready to be “threshed” to separate the grain and straw. Demonstrations will take place in the barnyard between 11:00 and 3:00 – with visitors helping to “winnow” the threshed grain to clean it, separating the wheat from the chaff and preparing it for grinding.

Stony Brook Walking Tour, Historical Society of Princeton

Saturday July 31, 2021
10:00 AM - 12:30 PM

Updike Farmstead, 354 Quaker Road, Princeton

Before there was a “Princeton,” six Quaker families established a community on the fertile ground along Stony Brook. This 2-mile hike explores the lives of the early settlers and the community they established, while following a portion of the trail George Washington took from Trenton to the Princeton Battlefield. Stops include the Stony Brook Meeting House and Burial Ground, walking a portion of the “hidden” back road into Princeton, and a view of the Battlefield.

Starts at the Updike Farmstead, 354 Quaker Road. Tickets are $10. Advanced tickets required – no walk ups will be allowed.

Space is limited to 12 participants. Masks are required for indoor portions of the tour. If participants have experienced any COVID-19 symptoms within 14 days of the tour, we ask that they stay home and contact us for a full refund. Guides are fully vaccinated and only lead tours if they are symptom-free.
