Visitors to the Open House at the Gulick house enjoyed the peaceful grounds, refreshed landscaping, and the newly reorganized archives of historic maps, journals, genealogy, photos and local artifacts. A perfect setting to learn a bit of Montgomery’s rich Dutch and Colonial past.
VHHS members were excited to show our visitors the new cedar-shake roof at the 260-year old stone Dutch farm house, thanks to a matching grant from the 1772 Foundation Grant Program, administered by the NJ Historic Trust.
