The Mystery of Honey Hollow

Join Richard Hunter as he reveals the true nature and location of the mysterious and much vaunted Hopewell locale known as “Honey Hollow.” Through detailed analysis of archival records and the densely wooded landscape of Baldpate Mountain, Richard will pin down precisely where Honey Hollow was situated and who lived there and when. This talk, which seeks the seeds of truth in the colorful writings about Honey Hollow by New Jersey folklorist Henry Charlton Beck in the 1930s, is based on a program of historical and archaeological research supported by the County of Mercer. The program will be held in the Wesley Forum, Kenneth Kai Tai Yen Humanities Building of the Pennington School, Pennington, NJ.
