Event description

Description

Our first lecture in our Migration Series: Join County and Readington Township Historian Stephanie Stevens in a talk about the migration of Dutch settlers into Hunterdon County. This lecture will take us from the Dutch coming to New Amsterdam (New York City), spreading out through New York, Connecticut and New Jersey, and beginning the settlement of Hunterdon County. Readington Township was the first new township in the new county, finally incorporated in 1798. Previous Tricentennial lectures have discussed the Proprietors, the Lenape Indians and how the land of Hunterdon was purchased and settled. This talk will bring more insight and information to those topics.

The Migration Series explores various immigrant groups that settled and influenced early Hunterdon County.
