7:30 pm


The Brick Township Historical Society will hold a meeting June 13, 2023 at 7:30 pm at the Herbertsville Firehouse, 601 Herbertsville Rd., Brick. The featured speaker will be music practitioner Bonnie Leigh presenting a program called “The Traditions of Healing Music.”  Historically many societies and cultures have used music to aid in relaxation and to help the sick.  Leigh helps patients with her music.

This is a change of program for that date due to unforeseen circumstances.

Admission is free and open to the public.  Parking is in the lot behind the firehouse.  Please use the door on the right on ground level.

The Brick Township Historical Society will host the 61st New York Regiment for a Civil War Encampment on its Havens Homestead Museum Property, 521 Herbertsville Rd., Brick.  The soldiers will camp out for the weekend, marching, firing guns, interacting with the public and explaining what life was like during an encampment.  They sleep in tents and make their own food over a fire pit.  

The historical society will be grilling and selling hamburgers and hot dogs, soft drinks, and also, have a homemade bake sale.  The Lizzie Herbert Gift Shop will feature specials and a large array of costume jewelry.  Tours of the museum are available.  Admission to all is free and donations are greatly appreciated.
