Sightseeing Along the Scenic By-Way

May 21, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 1:30 pm


Would you like to tour a byway that still resembles when George Washington’s troops marched there? Would you like to visit and learn about area historic houses and barns from the Revolutionary and early American period?

The Millstone Valley National Scenic Byway has a significant place in our nation’s history. In the heart of Central New Jersey and running through Montgomery, Hillsborough, and Franklin townships and the villages of Griggstown, East Millstone, Millstone, Kingston and Rocky Hill, this now protected byway is a natural north south corridor, which remains a rare oasis of natural beauty and historic integrity.

Join us May 21st to tour the scenic byway loop along the Millstone River and Delaware and Raritan Canal from East Millstone to Kingston and back. This guided bus tour by local history experts will be a trip back in time, to relive history and get a glimpse of life in the valley as it was and still remains today. Small amounts of walking will be involved when we stop at several Dutch Colonial, Federal, and Victorian style homes.
