THAT'S RIGHT!  We did NOT sell out of the October 11th Tavern Tour at the fabulous National Hotel in Frenchtown!  Tickets are available (while supplies last) on October 4 from 10 am to 2 pm at the Flemington Choir School and we'll be toting them along with us on our October 5, 7 and 9 lectures until they are sold out! $40 gets you a special lunch prepared just for us, a beautiful inn and a great lecture on the history of Frenchtown.  Cash bar available for those touristas who like to have a little something with a fine meal.

WE HAVE ROOM AT ALL OF OUR OCTOBER LECTURES!  Check our website www.hunterdon300th for the full monty -- but some highlights (we just can't believe there is any room left!) include this week's lectures on the Vought House Site's archeology (October 5, 1pm, Clinton Middle School) that includes a tour of the inside of the amazing house (suggested donation of $5 is requested by the Vought Trustees; 100% of these funds will go to the restoration of the house), or on the development of Hunterdon's Historic Roads (October 7, 7 pm, North Branch of the County Library), or on what Hunterdon County was like 100 years ago during the beginning of the First World War (October 9, 7 pm, Main Branch of the County Library),  or a special Planetarium Show of the planets and stars on the night of some of Hunterdon's most historic events (FAMILY FRIENDLY AND FREE!) at Raritan Valley Community College that includes a trip to the Observatory there (favorable sky conditions needed) -- this is GREAT FREE FAMILY ENTERTAINMENT! (October 10, 7 pm -- NO late admissions permitted), and the all day bus tour visiting some of our most beautiful, historical churches to see their architecture -- a great trip at a great price just to see the gorgeous foliage of Hunterdon!  (October 18, 9 am sharp, Raritan Township Municipal Building, $15 per person).

SPECIAL PARTNER EVENTS include a great display and program put on by the Rug Artisan's Guild on October 10 (daytime -- check our website) at the Assembly Space, Building One at the County's Route 12 Complex, a wonderful morning walking in Mount Airy (October 19), a spooky talk on ghosts in East Amwell (October 24), and a historic house tour in Flemington (October 25).  Plus there is so much more some of which have ticket information and details on our home page so here's the list:
