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.
