Morris Canal Museums Open

Sunday, September 11, 2016 -
1:00pm to 4:00pm

Morris Canal Bread Lock Park is open daily until dusk, but the museum is open the second Sunday of the month. Lock 7 West near New Village was known as "Bread Lock" because the store at the end of the lock sold goods to the boatmen, including homemade bread and pies. In the museum you will find models and displays of Warren County history with emphasis on the Morris Canal, Shippen Manor, Oxford Furnace and Lenape Indians.

The Jim and Mary Lee Museum reopens after its winter hibernation this Sunday. This unique museum is located in a former Morris Canal plane tender's house. Visitors can walk the inclined plane, tour the remains of the powerhouse, turbine chamber and tailrace; and view artifacts in the museum. Open 1-4pm, second Sunday of month, April-October.
