MIDDLETOWN, NJ: The Middletown Township Historical Society hosts Kristen T. Hohn as she presents "Salvage Archeology at the Hendrickson Farm in Middletown." In May 2019, members of the local historical community joined the Archeological Society of New Jersey and Monmouth University to volunteer at a salvage archeological survey at the Charles Hendrickson farmstead, just north of the Middletown Village Historic District. While the 18th century cottage has since been demolished, this presentation focuses on the history that lives on through the cultural material recovered at the site. The guest speaker Kristen T. Hohn is a historic preservation specialist and archeologist working for the Monmouth County Park System. Over the past decade Hohn's performed surveys across the Mid-Atlantic region. She specializes in the contact and colonial history of New Jersey and early domestic textile production. The Middletown Township Historical Society holds public events on the third Monday of the month, February through November.  Speakers are authors, historians, educators, and Society members. The community is free to attend. Meetings traditionally are held at the Middletown Township Public Library at 7:00 pm. DUE TO THE PANDEMIC, MEETINGS ARE NOW VIRTUAL UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.
