Adventures of Finding a Cook

Sue Hueskin, Delran Historical Society member has co-authored a book entitled Colonial Burlington County Cookery, a Book of Receipts. Sue will be discussing her book which focuses on Polly Burling and her receipts (or recipes) from 1770.  The program is being held on Saturday July 13th at the Mount Holly Friends Meeting House located at 81 High Street in Mount Holly starting at 1pm.  This event is free and open to the public.

Organizing Delran’s History

Members of the Delran Historical Society spent their Saturday morning reviewing donations, cataloging into our database, and scanning items.  Our hard work pays off so we can locate historical items when requested.  We also pulled items to include in an upcoming article about Millside Farms in the Positive Press.  Do you have a piece of Delran’s history?  Attend our monthly meetings on the third Tuesday of each month in the Delran Community Room in the Municipal Building at 7pm.
