Events December 12 through 14

The Sussex County Historical Society’s and M.A.R.C.H. are holding holiday events.  Unique gifts and crafts are being offered by the Vernon Historical Society and the Lafayette Preservation Foundation. 

The Montague Association for the Restoration of Community History (M.A.R.C.H.) will be opening the historic, holiday decorated Foster Armstrong House for free costumed tours from 1:00 – 4:00 p.m. on December 13th and 14th. Families are welcome to visit and participate in our Holiday Bell Hunt.

Antique Christmas tree ornaments, handmade decorations and toys adorn holiday trees in each room and “Children’s Toys” is the theme for the 2014 Old Fashioned Holiday Weekends. Only one weekend remains to visit the festively decorated rooms of the historic Foster Armstrong House.

As a very special ending to our 2014 Old Fashioned Holiday Weekends, singers from “Harmony in Motion” will be caroling on Sunday, December 14th. Our gift shop will be open with handmade items and books on local history during all of the tours.

The Foster-Armstrong House, circa 1790, is located on CR521/320 River Road, about 1 mile north of Route 206 and the Milford/Montague Bridge.  More information about M.A.R.C.H. can be found online at or by calling the information line at (973)293-3106.
