Harvest Homecoming at Historic New Bridge Landing

Sun Oct 16, 2022
1:00pm to 4:30pm ET
$12 adults, $7 students, BCHS members free

Come celebrate fall with the Bergen County Historical Society. Join the society at they celebrate 120 years as an organization. All three 18th century Jersey-Dutch sandstone houses, including the state historic 1752 Steuben House, are open for tours throughout the day.

Activities for families include scarecrow making, free pumpkin picking and decorating, and a taste-testing of a variety of apples.

On display for viewing in the Steuben House are Revolutionary War artifacts from the society's extensive collection.

Stop by the Westervelt-Thomas barn to see broom making and corn shelling demonstrations, and visit with the blacksmith on site to see what kind of wares he is making.

Do not forget to visit the society's authentic Jersey-Dutch out-kitchen and outdoor bake oven where BCHS interpreters prepare Barmbrack (an Irish Halloween sweet bread), Cornish pasties, apple pie, and homemade applesauce.

Take a peek at the treasures in the gift shop while you enjoy donuts, hot cider, and other fall refreshments which will be available for purchase outside the tavern.
