Come join the entire New Jersey Geocaching community as The Northern New Jersey Cachers, NNJC and Central Jersey cachers. CJC, hosts the 7th Annual area Metro Gathering Event. Geocachers from across the United States and beyond are invited August 29th, 2020, to attend this annual Metro Gathering Event.
This year we embrace New Jersey’s American Revolutionary War history as New Jersey is called the "Crossroads of the American Revolution", because it held a key geographical position at the center of the new nation. George Washington and the armies were in or crossing it throughout the war. NJ was heavily involved in the fighting, due to the troop movements through the state, and its key geographic position between New York City and Philadelphia.
The 2020 Metro Gathering ~ New Jersey's American Revolution will hold the event at East Jersey Old Town Village. This village is a collection of historic structures that were relocated to Johnson Park in Piscataway. The village is comprised of sixteen reconstructed and replica 18th and 19th century structures that represent architecture typical of farm and merchant communities once found in the Raritan Valley.
Visitors today can explore the site and meet the historical interpreters that bring the Village to life through their historic trades and crafts. A gateway site for the Crossroads of the American Revolution National Heritage Area, situated along the Washington-Rochambeau National Historic Trail, the Village offers award winning exhibits, living history, and seasonal programs.
