About the Event

Come celebrate Washington’s Birthday with the Bergen County Historical Society on Sunday February 26th 1 pm- 4:30 pm at Historic New Bridge Landing. 1201 Main Street, River Edge NJ.

The Tricorne Dance Ensemble which is under the direction of dance mistress Denise Piccino will be performing a 30-minute program in the state historic 1752 Steuben House at 1:30 pm and 3:30 pm. The program will celebrate General Washington through song and dance. Musical accompaniment will be provided by Ridley and Anne Enslow on the fiddle and hammered dulcimer. Space is limited for each performance.

Also, on display in the Steuben House will be the society’s lighting exhibit "Seeing the Past through a Different Light" and “New Bridge in the American Revolution: Artifacts and Maps” exhibit which includes enlargements on nine period maps and Revolutionary War artifacts from their extensive collection.

Take a peek at the treasures in the gift shop while you enjoy seasonal refreshments which will be available for purchase inside the tavern.

The Out Kitchen will be making a traditional English Boiled Pudding, and a sweet Apple Pie in a Coffin Crust aka a Standing Crust. Meat will be roasting on a spit over the fire. To complete the menu, we will make Madeira Syllabubs--a colonial libation of sweet wine topped with lemon and whipped cream. 

Re-enactors from the 3rd New Jersey Regiment will be on site demonstrating military life. (TBD)
