History Hike Planned For This Weekend

PERTH AMBOY – The Proprietary House Museum Association is organizing a hike through the Jockey Hollow section of Morristown National Historical Park on Sunday, May 6, meeting at 10 a.m. sharp at the entrance to the park’s Visitors Center. It’s an easy to moderate hike of three to four miles.

You will be hiking where 10,000 soldiers struggled to survive the most severe winter of the 18th century while in need of food and proper clothing. You will be able to see exhibits in the visitor’s center illustrating the soldier’s life.

The cost is $5 per person. To register, call the Proprietary House at 1-732-826-5527 and leave your name and phone number. Be sure to bring sturdy footwear, water, snacks, a camera, hat, and sunscreen. In the event of rain, the hike will be cancelled.

Proceeds from the event will benefit the Proprietary House Museum, owned by the State of New Jersey, administered by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection’s Division of Parks and Forestry, and operated by the Proprietary House Association.

For directions, call The Proprietary House.
