SHREWSBURY: INDEPENDENCE DAY DECLARATION READING
July 4, 10:00 am to 12:00 pm
The Monmouth County Historical Association hosts its annual celebration in honor of Independence Day featuring a public reading of the Declaration of Independence at the Allen House Tavern Museum.
Neighbors and friends of all ages are invited to participate in sharing the words that sparked America’s journey of independence and democracy. Much as they did when the colonists first gathered to hear these stirring words, the bells at Christ Church will ring in honor of the signing. Attendees will also have the opportunity to add their own signature to an oversized replica of the Declaration.
Attendees are welcome to bring lawn chairs. Parking is available in the Shrewsbury municipal parking lot across the street from the Allen House.
