The Samuel Fleming House Museum and Gardens (located at 5 Bonnell Street) was built in 1756 by Samuel Fleming. Flemington Borough purchased the home in 2005 from the D.A.R. (Daughters of the American Revolution) with the goal of reaching out to the community and visitors to develop an appreciation for local history. Upon the building's purchase, a "Friends" group was formed with a Board of Directors to administer, care for, develop programs and raise funds for the Samuel Fleming House. School programs have been developed in coordination with school curriculum, particularly the 2nd and 5th grades.
Visiting the Museum
An open house is hosted by the docents the second Saturday of each month from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm with activities and tours of the building and grounds. The building is also used for meetings, events such as "Friends Appreciation Night," book signings, colonial garden lectures, and children's activities. The original downhill backyard was transformed into a beautiful terraced garden used for programs and is available for weddings and parties.
The Samuel Fleming House Board of Trustees meets on the second Thursday of each month at 7:00 pm at the Samuel Fleming House.
