ROXBURY, NJ - Luminaries will light the way on Main Street in Ledgewood on the evening of Dec. 6 for free admission to a decades-old tradition featuring three of Roxbury Township’s historic treasures.

At the 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. event, visitors will take a trip back in time with sights and sounds that include:

  • A visit with St. Nick for children in the 1880s  King Homestead Victorian parlor at 209 Main St., and a  re-creation of Victorian girl’s bedroom upstairs.
  • A glimpse into a yesteryears shopping center and gathering place in the 1800’s King Canal Store, 211 Main St.
  • Open-hearth cooking in the 1700s keeping room of the Silas Riggs Saltbox House, 213 Main St., with a display upstairs of  Malcom Curry’s 75-year-old, pen-and-ink Christmas cards of the 1700s Old Stone House Farm on Emmans Road, and an optional soup supper by candlelight for a $10 donation for adults and $5 for children under 12.
