Crossroads of the American Revolution Sign to be Unveiled at Caldwell Parsonage in Union

A new interpretive sign will be unveiled on the lawn of the Caldwell Parsonage, 909 Caldwell Avenue, Union, at 12 noon on Saturday, October 16.  The placement of the historic marker is a preparation for the celebration of the 250th anniversary of American independence in 2026.

Telling the story of the death of Hannah Caldwell during the Battle of Connecticut Farms, the sign is part of Crossroads of the American Revolution National Heritage Area’s statewide program to create a common visual identity for the state’s Revolutionary-era historic sites. The sign is a way to share Hannah’s story and its impact on the war even when the Parsonage is not open.

This sign joins other Crossroads-themed interpretive markers that have already been installed at Liberty Hall in Union and the First Presbyterian Church and Burial Ground in Elizabeth.  A second Crossroads sign will be installed near Connecticut Farms School in Union to tell the story of the Battle of Connecticut Farms and its impact on the community.

For more information, please call 908-591-4377.
