A Birthplace of Democracy

The Courthouse Yard was a central part of landowner Jonathan Hampton's Town Plot in 1762. It was used for political meetings, corporal punishment, militia trainings, public entertainments, and a common pasture. Until 1858 voters in township elections indicated their choice by moving either up or downhill on the Green for a head count.

The 90-ton granite Civil War Soldier's and Sailor's Monument was erected in 1895.

In eternal gratitude to all those from Sussex County who have served in our armed forces.
