The Matawan Historical Society is conducting its first annual tour of the “Historical Churches of Matawan” on Sunday, April 23rd at 1:30 pm. There is no charge to attend this event.
Established in 1686, Matawan’s inception came from seeking religious freedoms from the Church of England. It led to various congregations, who chose Matawan as their first home in the “New World.”
This self-guided tour will begin with a kick-off event at the First Presbyterian Church of Matawan (FPC), located at 883 State Route 34 Matawan, NJ 07747.
The Tour at FPC will feature Old Time Music and refreshments. With special appearances by:
- Rev. Charles McKnight (1700s) Portrayed by Bryan Ackland
- Rev. Charles Webster (1800s) Portrayed by Mickey Maguire
- Rev. Chester Galloway (1900s) Portrayed by Roland Monserrate
- Rev. Natalie Bell (the 2000s)
