Rescheduled from September 11: Join us on the lawn of the King Home Museum, 209 Main Street, Ledgewood, where John Adams will address us from the porch of historic home. All three historic buildings in the district, the house, the King Store and the Silas Riggs Saltbox House, will be open for tours from 1 p.m. to approximately 2:45 p.m., when attendees will assemble on the front lawn of the house. Please bring your own chair.
As a Harvard graduate, lawyer, and farmer, John Adams has lived a unique life. His devotion to Independence and the cause of his country led him to serve in the First and Second Continental Congress, as the first Ambassador to England, the first Vice President of the United States, and the first President to follow George Washington. Knowing when to lead, when to serve, and when to bring others to the fore. And as a bold leader and staunch New Englander, he had the courage to speak his mind - and sometimes take unpopular action - for the good of America.
