Anderson of Princeton on clarinet and reeds; Warren Buckleitner of Flemington, cornet and trumpet; Henry Dale of Princeton, banjo, guitar and vocals; George Dougherty of Lawrenceville, trombone; Charley Huck of Somerville, piano; Jerry Gerard of Monroe Twp., drums; and Tom Spain of Skillman, tuba.

We are seeking donations of high quality items, services and experiences for the silent auction.  Please contact Gary Schotland at (908) 507-2708 or gschotland@gmail.com for further details.

The Friends of Historic Flemington believe the demolition of the Union Hotel and three adjacent buildings in the heart of the county seat’s historic district is unnecessary.   We advocate for the adaptive reuse of Flemington’s significant historic buildings, including the Union Hotel, as critical components of a thoughtfully designed and properly scaled downtown development.
