The historic Deacon Andrew Hetfield House in Mountainside will have multiple activities for visitors during the Four Centuries in a Weekend event, planned from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday.
During the weekend, docents will be on hand to discuss the history of the Deacon Andrew Hetfield house as well as the Levi Cory House, which will be moved next to the Hetfield House on Nov. 2. Many new exhibits have been established at the Hetfield House highlighting the history of Mountainside and the surrounding area. Tours will be ongoing throughout the weekend.
Visitors are welcome to check out the newly established “Village Shop” featuring crafts, new and vintage everyday and holiday décor items, stationery and ornaments. Proceeds go directly to the move and restoration of the Levi Cory house. In the future, the “Village Shop” will be relocated to the Levi Cory house.
On Oct. 20, Girl Scouts will demonstrate Colonial Rag Dolls. Visitors can learn how to make their own Colonial Rag Doll to take home.
The open house and all activities are free to visitors.
The Deacon Andrew Hetfield House is located at Constitution Plaza, adjacent to the Mountainside Library. The Mountainside Restoration Committee is a committee of volunteers governed by the Borough of Mountainside whose purpose is to maintain the Deacon Andrew Hetfield House, save and restore the Levi Cory House and collect and save historic information and items from destruction.
