Durand-Hedden House From Parlor to Attic

May 7, 2017, 1:00 - 4:00 PM

An informal afternoon during which visitors can explore many of Durand-Hedden’s nooks, crannies and collections and seek answers to questions like: When was the house built? Who lived here?, Did famous artist Asher B. Durand have anything to do with it? What was this room used for? What was that used for? Was the house restored and if so, how did it look before? Who runs Durand-Hedden and can I be a part of it?

The Forgotten Victory: The Battle of Springfield of 1780

Come to the Durand-Hedden House on Sunday, Oct. 17 to learn about the critical Revolutionary War battle of 1780 that was fought just down the road from here, in Vauxhall, the Short Hills, Springfield and Connecticut Farms (Union).

Historian John Kieser will bring to life this often-overlooked conflict, in which the New Jersey militia held off the British and prevented them from getting to Washington’s troops in Morristown.

House and Country Store open 1:00 to 4:00 pm

Presentation at 2:00 pm
