Start the New Year in historic midtown Elizabeth — beginning at the First Presbyterian Church, 42 Broad Street! This First Day hike is sponsored by Boxwood Hall and the New Jersey State Park system.
This two hour, 1.5 mile hike brings you through the heart of old Elizabethtown. Stand where the name “New Jersey” was first used. Visit a house where Washington, Hamilton and Lafayette visited. Discover 300 years of architecture. Explore our historic cemetery. Learn about the famous, infamous and forgotten who called this community home.
Children are welcome but must be accompanied by adults, as we will be crossing busy streets.
