Watch local history come alive at Walnford Day on Oct. 7 in Historic Walnford, Upper Freehold.
Play dress-up with 18th and 19th Century clothing, and even learn how to write with a quill pen. Children can participate in a scavenger hunt on the grounds as they explore the historic site. Horse-drawn wagon rides will also be on site!
The gristmill on the grounds is currently being restored, but is open for tours. A tour of the pre-revolutionary Waln home will be available, from floor to attic.
