The Littell-Lord Farmstead Museum Will Open for Union County 4 Centuries Weekend, October 21

BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ - The Historical Society of Berkeley Heights will open the Littell-Lord Farmstead Museum during the Union County 4 Centuries Weekend on October 21 and 22 between noon and 5 p.m.

The 18 acre farmstead is the oldest continuously occupied farmstead in Union County, with the original farmhouse built in 1760. The farm was purchased by the Township of Berkeley Heights in 1975 from Elizabeth Wemmett, a descendent of Charles Lord, who purchased the property in 1867.

The Historical Society created a museum within the house representing 3 centuries of occupancy. It is listed on the State and National Registers of Historic Places.

The site is located at the southwest corner of Horseshoe Road and Mountain Avenue in Berkeley Heights. The Society is looking forward to greeting visitors over the weekend.

The Historical Society of Berkeley Heights is a 501c-3 organization. Contributions are tax deductible.
