This week, I will feature National Park Service sites from #NewJersey and beyond in celebration of #NationalParkWeek.
Today I am featuring Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area in New Jersey and #Pennsylvania. This park was established September 1, 1965 and covers 70,000 acres. In New Jersey, it includes historic sites and communities in Montague, Walpack Center, the Van Campen's Inn, Millbrook Village, the Village of Bevans/Peters Valley, and many more historic homes and sites, many of which are abandoned in the aftermath of the failed Tocks Island Dam Project. #SpreadTheHistory #FindYourPark #nps

The Sussex County Historical Society Board of Trustees would like to thank everyone who attended the Gravestone Dedication for Matthew Davis, on April 21, 2018, at the Old Newton Burial Ground. It was an honor to work with all of those who participated and to see the large public turn out for this Revolutionary War Veteran. Photography by Bill Strait.

#WhereisitWednesday answer. Many of you correctly guessed that this is the Lusscroft Farm in Wantage Township. In 1931 the property was donated to the state to be used as a dairy research center for Rutgers University. Rutgers used the property until 1970. Today it is part of High Point State Park. Check back on Wednesday for another #WhereisitWednesday.
