On Tuesday, November 28th, some of our 9th, 10, and 11th grade students attended a history class trip to the Samuel Fleming House, the oldest homestead in Flemington, NJ. The house was built in 1756 and today serves as a museum depicting life during the colonial period. Students saw each room in the house as well as items from the 1700's that were used daily to run the household.
The wonderful docents who provided the tours were dressed in period clothing and were fountains of knowledge on the house and families of Hunterdon County from the 1700's to the Civil War. A surprise lunch was graciously provided for all students and staff who attended.
A special thank you to Kelli Dochterman, president of the Samuel Fleming House Museum and Gardens, who organized the visit and to the amazing docents who volunteered their morning to help us take our history lessons out of the classroom!
