This past weekend, my family and I had the opportunity to do a free tour of Haddonfield New Jersey’s Tricentennial Celebration organized by Becky of Crafty Garden Mama. Found in 1713 when Elizabeth Haddon and her husband John Estaugh, Quakers from England, built their home in the Estate section of Haddonfield, the town has much to celebrate! Don’t forget to check out the Haddonfield Tricentennial Site for the latest news on upcoming events and a wonderful video walking you back in time along with a rock’n’roll great.
We started our day in the Indian King Museum Tavern in the very room where the Declaration of Independence was signed into the minutes of the New Jersey State Legislature. Historical interpreters shared a brief synopsis of Elizabeth Haddon’s life followed by a discussion of life in the American colonies.
The Town Crier escorted us through Haddonfield pointing out historic buildings and sites along the way.
Our “foodie” kids talked about the wonderful tray of treats from The Sweet T bakery.
All the kids loved dipping strawberries in chocolate at In the Kitchen Cooking School!
Of course, we had to make a stop at the Hadrosaurus foulkii statue, one of the few dinosaurs found on the East Coast of the United States.
Our day ended with an array of free samplings at A Taste of Olive. I think my son wanted to come home with a bottle of almost everything there.
My family and I received a free tour along with samplings and gift certificates for Haddonfield merchants. All opinions in this post are my own.
