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.
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.
