The Gloucester Township Historic and Scenic Preservation Committee is proud to participate in a September 3rd, 2022, Global Celebration and collaboration of unity with twelve (12) named Gloucester communities throughout the U.S. and Abroad.
“Inaugural Global Gloucester Day” began as a 2017 collaboration between Gloucester, Virginia, and Gloucester, England, commemorating the Gloucester County, Virginia-born icon Pocahontas’s 400th anniversary of her funeral and burial in Gravesend, England.
The goal of the “Global Gloucester Day” celebration is to honor Pocahontas’s legacy of reaching out and bringing people together. Further to honor her, the events on September 3rd intend to promote environmental stewardship, especially as it relates to rivers and streams while recognizing the origin of Our Gloucester Township Community.
On September 3rd at 10 am, a ribbon-cutting ceremony will occur at the Historic 1756 Gabreil Davis Tavern Museum House and Grounds. The ribbon cutting will dedicate our trails' newly installed elevated walkway to the North Branch of Timber Creek and Otter Branch. The Gloucester Township Rotary Club Foundation funded the construction of the elevated walkway through grant writing, allowing our visitors to explore and follow in the footsteps of boat revealers of the 1700s & 1800s. After the ribbon cutting, guided history walks along the trail and grounds will be conducted. The day will conclude at 12pm with bells ringing throughout Gloucester Twp. and worldwide in the “Global Gloucesters.” The event is free, and all are welcome to attend.
