ABOUT RAMSAYSBURG HISTORIC HOMESTEAD
The concerts will take place at the Ramsaysburg Historic Homestead, a historic property settled in 1795 by Irish immigrants James and Adam Ramsay. It is located along the banks of the Delaware River in Warren County’s scenic countryside. The Ramsaysburg Homestead is owned by the state of New Jersey and is listed on the State and National Registers of Historic Places.
The Ramsaysburg Historic Homestead is located at 140 Route 46 at the junction of State Highway Route 46 and Hope-Ramseyburg Road, just south of the historic village of Delaware, New Jersey 07833. From Route 80 take Exit 4 and head east on Rt. 46 for 4.3 miles. For more information visit the website at www.ramsaysburg.org or send your email to RamsaysburgHomestead@gmail.com.
Ramsaysburg’s structures have been significantly restored thanks to important grant support from the Garden State Historic Trust Fund/NJ Historic Trust, The Warren County Municipal and Charitable Conservancy Trust Fund, The Warren County Cultural and Heritage Commission, The National Park Service/Martins Jacoby Watershed Association and The Delaware River Greenway Partnership and the kind cooperation of the NJ Department of Fish and Wildlife. The Knowlton Township Historic Commission gratefully acknowledges the generous support of the many friends of Ramsaysburg who have given generously of their time and talent. Volunteers are always welcome.
In 2017 Knowlton Township Historic Commission celebrated twenty years since its establishment in 1997. In addition to preserving the Ramsaysburg Historic Site, the Commission has worked with the State Office of Historic Preservation to recognize local historic districts and sites and to highlight the area’s rural agricultural history. Today Knowlton Township boasts many working farms, some held for generations by farming families dating back to the early 1800s.
