The Cultural Landscape of the Sourlands
Apr 20, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
Come and explore the complex landscape history of the dramatic Rock Hopper Preserve with local archaeologist Ian Burrow. We will find old quarries, abandoned historic roads, a stone bridge, massive stone walls, and the sites of early homesteads. There is even a hint of the presence of Native Americans in this intriguing and strangely remote-feeling portion of the Sourlands, on the outskirts of Lambertville.
