ETHPS Members and Friends - 
Have a Great Weekend -
Benjamin Temple House
Website designed by Rebecca Urban for the Ewing Township Historic Preservation Society - Copyright 2015 at Homestead 

            All is looking good at the House!  Our windows have been replaced and or repaired.   Come over and see!! Our roof has been sealed! The apple trees have been trimmed, and some of the rooms have been painted! What an ambitious spring we have had! Thanks to all who have had a part in making the House look Great so the Society can continue its mission of preservation and education! 
        We had a wonderful Sarah Temple Tea,  and our honorees, Helen Kull and Don Cox, were appreciative and all present (a full house!) learned quite a bit about our towns from these two dedicated residents!! 
        Upcoming, we have a Ewing Historic House Hunt.   We encourage our children from 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades (with parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles!!) to come partake in a drive around our Town.  (Great prizes to be awarded!) – Sunday, June 11,  2:00 pm beginning at the Benjamin Temple House! More details to follow!!
