Politics Set Aside – Historical Place and People

Announcement reads in part:
Politics Will Be Set Aside at Affair – Historical Place and People
Unusual interest is manifested in the Pidcock family reunion to be held at Neely’s Mills, two mills below New Hope on Saturday next, because James N. Pidcock of White House the big chief of the “Pirate” branch of the Democratic Party in Hunterdon County, is secretary and prime mover in the family organization. George M. Pidcock of Bloomsbury, candidate for coroner in Hunterdon County is president of the organization.The affair will begin at 11 o’clock in the morning and last until dark, so that for one whole day the big politicians of Hunterdon will spend their time in foreign Bucks, where a thousand votes wouldn’t do them a particle of good, and where the mere question of party lines doesn’t count.

This was before Washington’s Crossing Historical Park was established (1917). Pidcock boys enjoyed climbing in the rafters of the deserted house.
