The Chinkchewunska Chapter of the Daughter’s of the American Revolution will be holding their annual open house event “Christmas in July” on July 12, 13 and 14 (Friday-Sunday) from 11-4 each day at the DAR Van Bunschooten Museum (1097 Route 23, Wantage, NJ).

Enjoy complimentary tours of the historic home of Rev. Elias Van Bunschooten and other buildings given my docents in colonial costumes.  The event also features Attic Treasurers Sale, Quilt Barn Sale, Food and Bake Sale, Historic Re-enactors, and a visit from Santa Claus himself.

Christmas in July is an annual event to make history come alive in Sussex County at the Elias Van Bunschooten Museum, a little know treasure in Sussex County! This event is an annual “open house” and a fund raiser to help maintain the museum.  Listed on both the State and National Registers, this site is a wonderful example of a Dutch Colonial style home circa 1787, filled with original pieces from the Van Bunschooten and Cooper families, as well as many items of local historical interest including a Charleville musket carried in the American Revolutionary War.
