The Samuel Fleming House Museum and Gardens was built in 1756 by Samuel Fleming, an Irish immigrant who came to the then British colonies with his wife, Esther and their children.
The Borough of Flemington purchased the property in 2005 from the 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 volunteer run "Friends" 501(c)(3) nonprofit group was formed to administer, care for, develop programs, and raise funds for the Samuel Fleming House. School programs are conducted in coordination with public school curriculum. Every year, 5th graders from the Reading Fleming Intermediate School have the opportunity to come through during the school day and learn from the living history they may not be aware of that is just a few doors down from their school
