Member's Picnic in the
Apple Tree Grove
A revised version of our yearly members' Picnic will be held in the Apple Tree Grove. We plan to put up many tables to allow families to group together. We will not be cooking on the grill and will ask members to bring their own food.

Flea Market/Mum Sale
The Board has decided to alter our flea market this year and request that neighbors of Federal City Road and the surrounding streets join us for a Garage Sale/Yard Sale in September. The Society will have tables up near the road to join the sale, and we plan to have a mums for sale fundraiser for ETHPS. We hope to invite vendors back to the front field to join us in 2021.

Moving the Benjamin Temple House in 1973
The Benjamin Temple House, originally located on Pennington Road (Route 31), was moved by the State of New Jersey in May, 1973 to its present location on Federal City Road. The move was precipitated by the expansion of I-95 , and was accomplished through the untiring efforts of Gail Kuser and the Friends of the Benjamin Temple House. The Benjamin Temple House (also known as the Temple-Ryan Farmhouse) is on the national, state and township historic registries.
As the ETHPS enters its 47th year of stewardship, we embark on an ambitious 5-year plan to complete the final restoration work with a fundraising campaign. Join us in making the Ewing Museum at the Benjamin Temple House a reality. You can help to create a welcoming and historically accurate resource for the community with a donation to:
purchase additional period furnishings for the 1750 rooms;
provide funds for restoration of artifacts and the printing of educational materials;
sponsor exhibit signage for the museum; and
fund handicapped access including a deck and ramp at the rear of the house.
