Monmouth County Historical Association will again participate in the annual Holiday Lantern Tours of Shrewsbury's Historic Four Corners, a National and State designated Historic District, on Friday evening, December 6. On this special evening, the historic buildings at the corners of Broad Street and Sycamore Avenue will be open to welcome the public. Tours begin at 6:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. and are by reservation only. The tours will include four historic properties: Monmouth County Historical Association's Allen House, which was built circa 1710; Christ Church (1769); the Presbyterian Church (1822); and Shrewsbury Friends Meeting House (1816). At the Allen House, which served the community as a tavern in the mid-18th century, visitors will be greeted by the tavern keeper and his family who will illustrate tavern life through dramatic first-person storytelling. Live instrumental music and singing will be followed by cookies and cider generously donated by Foodtown in Red Bank, and general merriment. The cost of tickets is $15.00 for adults and $8.00 for children 12 and under. Tours leave from Christ Church located at 380 Sycamore Avenue. Please call Renee at 732-915-5862 to reserve a place on the tour.
