The historic Kearney House in the Palisades Interstate Park in New Jersey hosts a number of events each year when visitors can experience what it may have been like in the mid-19th century — when Mrs. Kearney, a widow who had brought up nine children at the house, also kept a dockside tavern there.
Behind the Times: Tues. evenings, June 27 and July 11 & 18
“Behind the Times” at Mrs. Kearney’s tavern
Open to all – no reservations needed!
On Tuesday evenings, June 27 and July 11 & 18, the historic Kearney House in the Palisades Interstate Park in New Jersey will open its doors from 7 to 9 PM for those who wish to stop by to enjoy a late summer day along the Hudson. Staff dressed in nineteenth-century garb will serve lemonade and watermelon, and they will teach youngsters of all ages how to play some period games and amusements. From beneath his stovepipe hat, the house’s “tavern musician,” Mr. Thaddeus MacGregor, will perform music of the time period. MacGregor, a musician and teacher from Englewood, will play banjo, cigar-box guitar, and a pair of “limberjacks” named Wee Jim and Obadiah Armstrong, wooden percussion instruments that also provide the illusion of miniature tap dancers.
