The Hunterdon County Historical Society announces winter walking tours through Flemington beginning at the decorated Doric House Museum at the Society’s headquarters @ 114 Main Street in Flemington on Sunday, December 3 and Thursday, December 14 @ 1:30 pm.
Led by heritage educator, Janice Armstrong, the tours will begin at the Society’s Doric House, decked out for the holidays by the Community Garden Club and the Garden Club of Hunterdon Hills. The walking tour will last about an hour.
Ms. Armstrong will highlight the beautiful Greek Revival and Victorian architecture in homes and businesses, as well as detail the fascinating history of Flemington’s lesser explored side streets. Tours will walk from the Doric House, down Main Street and continue to Mine and Park Avenues to cover some interesting local history before returning to tour the Doric House Museum.
A suggested donation of $5 per person will benefit the Historical Society. Pre-registration is suggested and can reserve a space, but guests may show to see if they can be accommodated.
The Doric House is open for visitors to view its collections and holiday decorations from 12 until 3:00 on December 3. (Street parking is no longer available after 4:00 to make way for Flemington’s holiday parade.) The Doric House is also open each Thursday in December prior to Christmas: December 7, 14 and 21 from 12-3:00 pm.
