"Salvage Archaeology at the Hendrickson Farm in Middletown" plus Annual Meeting
The Middletown Township Historical Society hosts Kristen T. Hohn as she presents "Salvage Archaeology at the Hendrickson Farm in Middletown." In May 2019, members of the Middletown Township Historical Society joined the Archaeological Society of New Jersey and Monmouth University to volunteer at a salvage archaeological survey at the Charles Hendrickson farmstead, just north of the Middletown Village Historic District. While the 18th century cottage has since been demolished, this presentation focuses on the history that lives on through the cultural material recovered at the site.
Ms. Hohn is a Historic Preservation Specialist and Archaeologist working for the Monmouth County Park System. Over the past decade she’s performed surveys across the Mid-Atlantic region, specializing in the contact and colonial history of New Jersey and early domestic textile production. She is currently on the board of the Archaeological Society of New Jersey.
A brief Annual Meeting of the Middletown Township Historical Society will precede the talk, where existing members who have not already submitted their vote for trustee will be able to vote in the election. Memberships for 2020, starting at just $10, will also be available to those inclined.
The event will begin at 7:00 pm at the Middletown Township Public Library at 55 New Monmouth Road on Monday, March 16, 2020 in the Community Room. All are welcome free of charge. Information may be found at https://www.MiddletownNJHistory.org.
