History Family Days

One Sunday a month, the James and Ann Whitall House and Fort Mercer offer special programs focusing on an aspect of the park's history. Ever wonder how people made clothes in the 1700's? What was it like to be a Revolutionary soldier? How did women prepare meals? Why is Fort Mercer so important to Revolutionary history? Heritage Days are always family friendly and filled with great activities for everyone to enjoy.

Gardens

The Gloucester County Certified Gardeners maintain our historic gardens. The gardeners are volunteers who actively work to cultivate vegetables, culinary and medicinal herbs, dyeing flowers, and cutting flowers that are historically representative of the eighteenth century. Learn what herbs Ann Whitall would have used to treat a cough or heal a wound. Observe how flower pigments added color to clothing. Hear about true farm to table families.

Tours

We routinely offer special tours to elementary and secondary schools, home schoolers, summer camps, scouts, and senior community centers and homes. Have a particular interest in early American history? Let us know and we can tailor a tour just for you. Our knowledgeable docents are experts in Revolutionary history and early American life. After your tour, Red Bank Park offers scenic picnic pavilions for groups to relax and enjoy magnificent views of the Delaware River.

Volunteers

We would not be here if it were not for our dedicated volunteers who help make this National Historic landmark come alive. Volunteers help in all aspects of the House and Battlefield. Volunteer docents offer tours to the public and visiting schools, plant and maintain our historically-inspired gardens, and offer hearth cooking demonstrations throughout the year. If you have some time and would like to help the Whitall House and Red Bank Battlefield, please drop us a line. We'd love to have you!
