Event Details

The 19th century inhabitants of the Hamlet of Amsterdam in Holland Township built fascinating houses, barns, and outbuildings that will be explored on a walking tour of the hamlet.  Amsterdam is in the northwest corner of Holland Township in Hunterdon County.  Many of the early settlers migrated from Upper Bucks County, Pennsylvania shortly after the turn of the 19th century.  The members of the Rapp family were known for their carpentry and engineering skills; their barn which was built in 1824 and enlarged in 1844 (according to dendrochronology), shows unique construction features; their gravity fed water supply accompanied a Victorian bank house.  Jacob Ulmer was a cobbler whose shop remains over a springhouse in a rare combination outbuilding.  "Sinclair and Snyder" operated a store and John Snyder was a blacksmith. Five bank barns can be seen within the hamlet including one an intricate switchback engineered to access the upper level .  Also illustrated are several house plan types, including an early two-story single room stone dwelling and the John Kooker house with two front doors.

Walk limited to 20 people. 

Walk begins at 10:30 am; meeting location will be disclosed to people with reservations only.

Rain date is Sunday, March 24th at 2 pm.
