Chapter Meeting

PROGRAM: Tour and Lunch at Peachfield

Tour: 11:00am
Lunch: 12:00pm

We will visit the Peachfield, a restored country home in Burlington County. The name “Peachfield” comes from the property’s first settler, John Skene, the first Freemason resident on record in the colonies. Upon his death, the property was purchased by Henry Burr, who built the east portion of the home in 1725.

Peachfield is owned and maintained by the National Society of the Colonial Dames of America in the State of New Jersey. Now used as the society’s state headquarters, the New Jersey Dames have honored the last owner's wish to keep the property as it “always has been,” and have maintained Peachfield as a house museum.

There is a fee for the tour and lunch, and reservations are required. Please contact Chapter Regent Pamela Campbell for additional information.

Winter Calendar

December 9, 2015
Chapter Meeting

PROGRAM: To the Last Extremity: Fort Mifflin’s Valiant Stand
Presented by: Elizabeth Beatty
Executive Director, Fort Mifflin on the Delaware

Fort Mifflin

Regular Meeting Location
Refreshments: 12:00 noon
Program begins at 1:00pm

Fort Mifflin was the scene of a shining moment during the American Revolution. Located on an island, just below Philadelphia, the fort occupied an important strategic position on the Delaware River. The 400 patriots garrisoned at the fort were charged with of holding the British off “to the last extremity” so that Washington and his exhausted army could successfully move into winter quarters. The valiant efforts of the men at Fort Mifflin held the mighty British Navy at bay, and the battle escalated into the greatest bombardment of the American Revolution and one that many say changed the course of American history.
