The Farmstead will be one of 30 historic sites throughout Somerset County which will open their doors and invite the public to make a connection to local history.  A significant historic site dating back to the Revolutionary War, the KMS Farmstead has been exquisitely restored and repurposed as a local arts venue.  Visitors will be treated to tours of the Farmhouse and English Barn. 

In addition, on Saturday, October 13th at 1:00, 1:45 and 2:30, singer/songwriter Gordon Thomas Ward will present concerts of acoustic contemporary folk songs with local history themes. 

Throughout the weekend, ceramic artist Debbie Limoli will offer hands-on colonial pottery workshops in the English Barn. 

There will also be colonial games for the whole family.

The farmhouse and barn are wheelchair accessible.  Anyone anticipating the need for additional accessibility services may make a request by sending an e-mail to admin@farmsteadarts.org in advance.

Funds for these events have been made possible in part by the New Jersey State Council on the Arts/Department of State, a partner agency of the National Endowment for the Arts, through the State/County Partnership Local Arts Program Grant administered by The Somerset County Cultural & Heritage Commission.
