Tentative Route:
http://www.wandermap.net/en/route/3587649-hudson-county-tour-part-1/

14-mile history tour of a large part of the Hudson County. We will walk north from the Hoboken NJ Transit Train Terminal along the western shore of the Hudson River up to Guttenberg and the swing down south along the Palisades down to the Journal Square Transportation Hub in Jersey City.

There are transportation options along the way if you want to drop off before the end. We will frequently stop to talk about history but you must be comfortable averaging a moderate speed of 3.0+ mph (20:00 pace) including street crossings and traffic lights.

9:45 AM - Sign in and Briefing
10:00 AM - Start
5:00 PM - Finish (and buy me dinner?)

Highlights include:
1) Sybil's Cave - Excavated in 1832, this cave features a natural spring and a Gothic-style arch at the entrance.
2) Elysian Fields: Knickerbockers V. New Yorks - Historic field said to be the site of the first organized baseball (or "town ball") game in 1845.
3) Battle of Bull's Ferry - Battle in July 20th-21st, 1780 when two American brigades under Brigadier General Anthony Wayne attacked a party of Loyalist Americans led by Thomas Ward.
4) Shri Swaminarayan Mandir - First Swaminarayan temple in the United States and the national headquarters of the ISSO.
5) Weehawken dueling grounds where President Aaron Burr shot and killed former Secretary of the Treasury Alexander Hamilton.
6) Shippen Street - Cobblestone double hairpin turn
7) Van Vorst House - Historic 1740 Stone House
8) Jersey City Reservoir #2 & #3 - A 14-acre reservoir that is now a beautiful lake surrounded by trees and meadow-topped walls. I'm trying to get us special group access.
9) Newkirk House / Summit House - Two-story Dutch Colonial building composed of sandstone, brick, and clapboard that is the oldest surviving structure in Jersey City, New Jersey dating back to 1690.

* Please RSVP and join the waitlist. DO NOT COME IF YOU ARE NOT RSVPED YES. I do not want to clog up tiny city streets and for people not to be able to hear me as we make frequent stops to talk about history. *
