Event Details

 

What we know today as Oldwick used to be called New Germantown until 1918, when anti-German sentiment caused the name to be changed to Oldwick.  The reason behind the name Oldwick is that wick means village and since at the time of the change the village was old, it was named Oldwick, meaning old village.  Prior to New Germantown, the village was named Smithfield, after its principal resident Ralph Smith.  Oldwick is on the New Jersey and National Registers of Historic Places and was the first historic district in Tewksbury to have been done so back in 1979, one of the earliest in Hunterdon County.  We’ll see over a dozen different types of architecture employed on Oldwick’s historic business and residential buildings.
