Ewing Township Historic Preservation Society Author Talk

March 8 @ 3:00 pm

The Ewing Township Historic Preservation Society presents Beverly Mills and Elaine Buck of the Stoutsburg Sourland African American Museum and authors of If These Stones Could Talk.

Beverly Mills and Elaine Buck will share their journey in establishing the first African American Museum that serves the Hopewell, Mercer, and Somerset communities. Their many years of research found the official burial place of one of the first Revolutionary War African American soldiers from the Sourland Region. They co-authored If These Stones Could Talk about the Stoutsburg Cemetery and its lessons from the past that are voiced by their unearthing of many overlooked and untold stories.

The Event is a fundraiser for the Ewing Township Historic Preservation Society:
ETHPS members – $10.00
General Public – $15.00
