A Voyage of Rediscovery: The Onrust in 2014

Wednesday, November 5th, 2014 at Bahrs Landing restaurant, Highlands

NMHA's mission is to explore and celebrate the maritime history of Monmouth County. In June 2014 NMHA commemorated the 350th anniversary of the first voyage of English settlers from Gravesend to Monmouth County by organizing the reenactment of that voyage by a replica of an early 17th Century sailing ship - the Onrust. The first settlers came from the English settlement at Gavesend, Long Island to find freedom and religious liberty.

NMHA will also celebrate 2014 for the founding of the first permanent home of NMHA at the historic Grover House, built circa 1730 by James Grover, grandson of one of the original twelve English settlers  Activity Center will be built close by.
