NJ Museum seeking artifacts for exhibition from Bellewood Park in Patenburg, NJ

The Red Mill Museum Village is currently working on an exhibition featuring early aerial photographs of Hunterdon County. These enlarged photos will be displayed with artifacts that are relevant to each photograph. The Museum is currently looking for anyone who might have artifacts from Bellewood Park in Patenburg, NJ.  We are particularly interested in any whole souvenir mugs from the park, such as the mugs depicted in the book, Union Township Rural Recollections.  Any information on the mugs or other artifacts from the park would be greatly appreciated.
