Events

The Ride to Pleasant Grove 20 Year Anniversary & Historic Farm Life Exhibit Opens August 3

“The Ride to Pleasant Grove” was written by local author Sal Vuocolo in 1999. During extensive renovations to his circa 1700s Lebanon Township farmhouse, Sal began researching its history and chronicling his findings. The end result was a piece of literature that is part memoir and part fictional tale of a day in the life of James Hance, the farmer who owned the house in “Anthonytown” in the 1850s. It is a story that celebrates Hunterdon’s history through the eyes of a hardworking farmer.

Sal passed away in 2003, but his life and legacy live on through his book.

On Saturday, August 3 from 1:00 - 4:00 pm, the Lebanon Township Historians Committee will host a celebration of Sal’s life and work with book readings at 1:30 and 2:30 pm and an exhibit of book-related artifacts, photos and paintings. Rediscover the joys of “The Ride to Pleasant Grove” or fall in love with it for the very first time. The book is available through the Hunterdon County Library system or can be purchased at the Museum for $5.

The exhibit will be on display through August 31.
