Franklin Township Walk & Roll

August 27, 2023
10:00 AM - 4:00 PM

Come join WARO and W3R-US on Sunday August 27th from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm in Griggstown and walk (or ride) beside General George Washington and his valet Billy Lee! Pretend as if you were there over 200 years ago marching alongside the General and Mr. Lee as they make their way through the Franklin Township along Canal Road. The road is part of the Millstone Valley Scenic Byway, which French troops marched along in late August of 1781 on their way to the Siege of Yorktown!

 

PARKING ADVICE: Parking is available near the reenactor activity along the Griggstown Causeway in the D&R Canal State Park, or in the back lot of the Griggstown Reformed Church at 1065 Canal Road, just north of the road closure, or in the fields across from the church (assuming the ground is dry). Parking is also available in the D&R Canal State Park near Route 518 in Rocky Hill, about 5 miles south of where most reenactor events will occur.

Organizer:

The Millstone Valley Preservation Coalition
