Princeton Nurseries Kingston Celebrates 100th

The Friends of Princeton Nursery Lands invites members, friends and neighbors to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Princeton Nurseries Kingston site on Saturday, September 7, 2013, in the Mapleton Preserve. Princeton Nurseries is an important part of Kingston's history. The preserved portions of the former nursery lands are a key part of the Kingston greenbelt. Read about the history of Princeton Nurseries here.

The anniversary celebration, from 1 to 4 pm, will feature Princeton Nurseries' displays, historic vehicles and live music by The Bare Root Band, which includes William Flemer IV and friends. Refreshments and birthday cake will be served. The event is free and all are welcome. The Mapleton Preserve is located at 145 Mapleton Road in Kingston. If approaching the preserve from Princeton Landing, the entrance is on the right, marked by a sign for the D&R Canal State Park Headquarters.

Extra hands are needed, so if you can assist with set-up, registration, serving refreshments or parking, please call 609-683-0483 to volunteer.
