RIVER EDGE, N.J. -- View the epitaphs of long-gone Jerseyans in the photographic tombstone and gravestone rubbings exhibit on Sunday at Historic New Bridge Landing in River Edge.

During this Harvest Homecoming event, kids will have a chance to make their own brass-plate rubbings.

The event runs 1-4:30 p.m. and costs $10.

Families can also tour the nineteenth century barn and the three, eighteenth century houses, including Washington’s September 1780 headquarters in the Steuben House. Interpreters are available to discuss life in early Bergen County.

At the reproduction colonial out-kitchen, people can get a peek at the cookery of early Jersey rural life.

The Black Horse Tavern will be open for cider doughnuts and apple cider.

The first 75 children to arrive can pick a free pumpkin.

All three sandstone houses, including the Steuben House, a state historic site, are connected by an ADA-compliant gravel walking path.

Free parking is available.
