Moving the Benjamin Temple House in 1973
The Benjamin Temple House was originally located on Pennington Road (Route 31) and 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 are embarking on an ambitious 5-year plan to complete the final restoration work with a fundraising campaign. Please 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 toward:
purchasing additional period furnishings for the 1750 rooms;
providing funds for restoration of artifacts and the printing of educational materials;
sponsoring exhibit signage for the museum; and
funding handicapped access including a deck and ramp at the rear of the house.
