THE BATEMAN IRON AGE IMPLEMENTS – 1836 TO 1929
The Bateman Iron Age Implements Works manufactured farm tools and even a car or two beginning in 1836 until the late 1920s. This international business would bring the railroad to Grenloch Terrace, provide solid employment, and sponsor the Grenloch Lake Park amusements as well.
Jason Shriver has an extensive collection of Bateman memorabilia, from watch fobs to garden hoes, which he will share with us at the Olde Stone House Village at 1 pm on Saturday, November 12, 2022. Following this, tour the Village’s five historic buildings and learn about the history of Washington Township. Admission is free, but please register in advance.
Washington Township’ s Historic Preservation Commission announces the Olde Stone House Village at 208 Egg Harbor Road will now be open for visitors on occasional Saturdays of summer and early fall months from 1 pm until 3 pm except when formal events are already scheduled. Guided tours will be given at 2:00 pm beginning at the Railroad Station.
Overseen by the Washington Township Historic Preservation Commission, the village centers on the George Morgan Stone House, c 1765, the original farmhouse on our five acre site. To prevent historic properties from being razed during the development of our township, four other historic buildings were moved to the site in the 1980s. These include the Turnersville Post Office, the Quay Farmhouse, the original Bunker Hill Presbyterian Church, and the Blackwood Railroad Station. Together, the five buildings provide a look at the history of Washington Township through the 18th and 19th centuries, from farming to industry.
Parking and tours are free to the public, though donations are always welcome. The Village is entirely supported through donated funds. Volunteer guides are provided by the Friends of the Olde Stone House Village.
