3rd Grade Visitors Say Thanks!

These are just a few of the many wonderful thank you notes we received.
We're so glad you enjoyed learning about The Locktown Stone Church!





The Lambertville Traditional Carol Society, now in its tenth year, was started as a choir of friends who came together to sing many of the well-loved but less familiar carols of the season. The choir was formed by invitation rather than by audition, allowing for many and varied musical histories among the friends, but joined together by a love of singing. The choir extends its repertoire in the Spring to include a cappella pieces from the Baroque and Renaissance periods, along with the occasional piece of traditional Americana.

A good will offering will be collected to share between the Locktown Stone Church and the Lambertville Food Pantry.



  
Weddings in the Church

The church provides a wonderful setting for a country wedding, with its spare architecture, its beautiful stone walls, surrounded by tall trees, standing next to a country road. The front courtyard is bordered by a low stone wall, making a perfect space for gathering after or before your event.

The interior is painted white, creating a quiet, peaceful elegance. Flower arrangements stand out and the light from the north window creates a special atmosphere. Thanks to the excellent acoustics provided by the vaulted ceiling, it is possible to have one or two musicians perform wedding music on instruments as quiet as unamplified guitars.

The church comfortably seats 100 people, but can easily acccomodate 125. Electricity, sanitary facilities and parking are available.

If you are interested in using the church for your wedding, we would be happy to show it to you. To arrange to view of the inside of the church, or to obtain information about reserving the church, write to Luise Wingerter@centurylink.net

Concerts in the Church

Every year, the Friends of the Locktown Stone Church sponsor a concert series to highlight the beautiful acoustics of this old building. We have found that classical music works especially well, and that Sunday afternoons in the fall are particularly enjoyable.

Locktown Stone Church Presents

Mimi Conklin Upmeyer
2018 Concert Series

The Friends of the Locktown Stone Church is pleased to announce its Fall 2018 Mimi Conklin Upmeyer Concert Series. The Fall concert series is a wonderful way to showcase the beautiful acoustics of the Locktown Stone Church as well as the wonderful job that is being done in preserving this gem in the middle of Delaware Township. Proceeds from the concert series as well as donations go to further fund preservation efforts.

This year's concert series is dedicated in memory of Mildred Wehr, of Baptistown, NJ.  Mildred had been very active in the preservation efforts of the Locktown Stone Church, and was a valued trustee of the Friends of the Locktown Stone Church. Mildred's gentle nature,  stories and anecdotes, as well as her breadth of knowledge of the area will be greatly missed. 

Built in 1819 by the Old School Baptist Congregation of Hunterdon County, the church is a fine example of Federal vernacular architecture.  Its fanlight windows, pedimental doors, and vaulted ceiling have earned it a place on the National Register of Historic Places.  The former church, which is now owned by Delaware Township, is available to groups and individuals for meetings and appropriate events such as weddings, poetry readings, and concerts.
