Spring has arrived and the volunteer Friends of Wallisch Homestead are ready to get out and make things happen to beautify this historic property. They have some events planned, including this first one, a spring clean up on Saturday, April 19.

Volunteers are needed to help with opening trails, preparing planting beds, clearing debris and general grounds work. It's light work, promises the group, and the more volunteers who show up, the quicker and easier it will be.

Volunteers should wear work clothes and shoes and bring tools, such as garden spades, rakes for stones and leaves, shovels and brush clearing tools.

It won't be all work and no play. In addition to meeting new people and making new friends while working, there will be bagels for breakfast and lunch provided, as well as door prizes.

And for those who can't do any work next Saturday but want to just stop by and take a look around, all are invited. Organizers said anyone can come explore the property and enjoy the grounds.

The group has recently published its master plan and presented it to both the township and board of education, joint owners of the property.

The work starts at 8 a.m. and goes until 1 p.m. Those who want to just look around should come around 10 a.m.

According to the group's web page, the Tischenor-Gregory-Goodell-Wallisch Farmstead is one of the last remaining spaces that accurately reflect Northern New Jersey’s agricultural heritage, and West Milford’s past. This 200-year-old property is located on Lincoln Avenue and has a Dutch Revival house, part of which dates back to before 1820, a stone barn and creamery from 1912, as well as two wood post and beam barns.
