Join the Historical Society of West Windsor and West Windsor Bicycle and Pedestrian Alliance on Saturday, October 28 at 10AM at the West Windsor Senior Center (271 Clarksville Road) for our Martian Bike Ride! This 5-mile loop will explore the historic 1700s-era West Windsor community of Grovers Mill as well as Orson Welles' infamous 1938 War of the Worlds broadcast that thrust that neighborhood into the national spotlight as the site of an "alien invasion."

Osage Orange Day & Fence Building, Howell Living History Farm

Saturday October 28, 2023
10:00 AM - 4:00 PM

Children's Craft: Osage Centerpiece (11:00–3:00)

Planting and pruning is only finished when the Osage orange hedgerow is ‘horse high and hog tight.’ Help farmers trim these natural fences, and gather fallen oranges for use in the farmhouse basement...where their scent is thought to discourage insects and spiders from taking up residence. Weather permitting, visitors can also help farmers rebuild "snake fences" that line the sheep pasture!
