Pioneer Fiddle in Sussex County

Several times a year, re-enactors will converge on the old Van Campen Inn, still standing and wecoming travelers as it did in the early years of the colonies. In this clip, Jim Stanko of Hardwick township provides some musical color with the fiddle. He also gives a little history of the music itself. Learn more about the history of the Old Mine Road at NJSkylands.com. Driving along the Old Mine Road along the Delaware River, any time of year, gives a sense of wonder and a sense of place to the traveler.
