Parker Homestead Cleanup Day 8/19

Head over to the 18th century Parker Homestead at 235 Rumson Road in Little Silver from 9-12 on Sunday, August 19th for a day of work in the barns-- many hands make light work!

There are things to be moved, a section of wagon barn to be cleared, weeds to be managed... Chances are good it will take less than 3 hours of your time ... especially if there are a lot of us! Light refreshments will be served. The main house will be open for tours, too!

Parker Homestead has no paid staff-- it's all volunteers, all the time! We truly NEED your help!

Last summer, I decided to focus my research on religious attitudes in the region during the war, because I noticed that there was markedly less conflict between Catholics and Protestants in the region than would be expected, given the heated religious rhetoric that surrounded the conflict.
