2.Burlington County History Roundtable will be at Batsto at 10:00 on September the 24th this month. I've been delighted to attend each one and learned a great deal of fascinating history, dates for other events, and met many interesting people in the NJ history world. If you can't make this one, the next is October 22 at the Roebling Museum.
The THird Sunday of the month is Heritage Day at the James & Ann Whitall House, Red Bank Battlefield, National Park, NJ. I work those days as a docent and I can tell you they are interesting days. Also this autumn is the big re-enactment of the Battle of Red Bank.
Speaking of Revolutionary re-enactments, Greenwich has their teaburning celebration this autumn, Sat. Sept. 24th, there is also an Arts and Crafts festival in the yard of the Gibbon House with music to enjoy.
September 17, the Indian King Tavern hosts Open House with Ned Hector, Re-enactor presenting in the Assembly Room. I work there too, hope to see you!
On October 15 the Indian King Tavern will be honored with the presence of Benjamin Franklin during the Open House.

It is a fun place to spend an afternoon browsing the shelves and looking for Look Magazine for the month you were born. Nice little town for browsing shops and having lunch too.
